This one was an all around shiny week which started all wrong. On Monday I had a pretty serious bike accident. In fact I can't remember anything about it: I hit my backhead hard on the ground and lost my conscience for a few seconds. Luckily there were gentle peasants around to help me, and I managed to regain my feet with a few bruises, an almost-broken rib and sore knees.
Because of the head trauma I was feeling some strong dizziness periods, so I have spent some time in the hospital passing tests, until yesterday they found that all I have is this. Phew! Good to know that my brain survived! (though it is the same brain that had a stupid bike accident on Monday in the first place)
On Wednesday morning, before my bike was stolen some hours later, I got accepted for Google Summer of Code, on a very interesting project for Haskell. La ostia! The funny thing is that many people in my research group found it out before than myself, reading it in a post to the Haskell list. It rocks to have this sort of group mates!
I'm a bit scared with the perspective, because until I get some vacation time in July time will have to be shared between work on SoC, PhD courses and PhD work, so it is going to be a tight schedule.
That was all. Not bad for a first post. I will try to post at least an update a week, though I know beforehand that's an empty promise.
