Review on My Past Posts

It’s amazing to see that I have blogged for more than one year. Some of my posts are about things and lessons that I learned from work and research. But most of them are notes taken by reading articles and books. I recorded things that I felt touching and useful. My posts represent my interests at the time when they are posted. Actually I use my blog as my notebook. I need to come to my blog quite often to check things. Since I have many posts, now it’s a good time to group them so that I can check thing more efficiently. That’s the purpose of this post.
