Burn Rate

The End

This is the end. I’m gonna stop writing this blog. I’ve said this multiple times, to my friends, to my readers, and to myself, but this time I’m truly stopping.

Why? Simple. I’m graduating. And it’s a pretty big waste of time and energy to keep worrying about NYU CS after I’ve left. Contrary to what this blog may imply, NYU is not my main priority or concern. I started it because I was encountering NYU CS’ shortcomings first hand, day in and day out. That is no longer the case.

If you like my writing, please check out my other blog Up To Interpretation. It’s less negative (I hope).

I’d also like to add a disclaimer that all of these posts were written at a particular time and a particular place. As time has passed, their context may be lost. To quote one of my favorite films, In the Mood for Love:

That era has passed, nothing that belongs to it exists anymore. He remembers those vanished years, as though looking through a dusty window-pane, the past is something he could see but not touch. And everything he sees is blurred and indistinct.

If you read these posts and find them deeply inaccurate, please remember that I was writing in that era, and that you are looking through a dusty window-pane into the past.

If it still truly bothers you, go out and write your own posts! I’d love for the people who write excellent rebuttals on reddit to start their own blogs, to make their own cases. Reddit comments are great but a blog will stand on its own.

I also hope that my angrier, more controversial posts don’t overwhelm the other posts. Just because I happen to not love NYU CS, doesn’t mean my advice on email or side projects is wrong.

I’d like to thank everybody who has read a post and agreed or disagreed. I’d like to thank all the people I’ve bugged to read my posts and give me feedback, even if they didn’t give it. I’d like to thank NYU CS, the faculty, the students, the administrators. Without you, I wouldn’t have anything to write about.

Thank you all!
