About this website
This is my personal website and its mainly purpose is to
record ideas and research notes, compile link lists (references)
for personal usage and to produce original work.
However personal this website may be, its purpose is also due
to sharing content, so perhaps more technically maybe that should be
called a public personal website (I'm coining this expression)
and I hope
the visitor can enjoy its content.
While I am not sure how good that is to flash one's credentials,
I admit sometimes knowing better someone may be useful.
That is not to say one's credentials alone mean much.
What about stupidity?
I reckon that is stupid when one only cares about diploma degrees.
The word qualification may be inappropriate or unjust,
because many people who do not possess such lawful papers may be
qualified to talk about any certain subject, in many ways.
Though I reckon that as a broad generalisation is a much better
filter for identifying a competent person than just checking one's
degrees, it mau also required more work from the reader.
The main point here is to suspend all authority of one's credentials
before judging one's ideas by their sole merit first,
if that is what matters (science, hopefully).
If one's rationale passes verification from a human peer, a
qualification degree may be useful in explaining one's ideas or
supporting one's claims further, but that cascading sequence of
verification should probably not be done in the inverse sense or order!
See for example this article
which I just found on the internet and opened my eyes
to amazing possibilities I had not thought about yet..

Sobre este sítio
Aqui falamos sobre ciência e tecnologia. Faço
anotações de idéas e pesquisas, assim como listas com links
(compilação de referências) e também produzo material original.
Possivelmente, iremos produzir alguns episódios de
Podcast em Português em algum momento no futuro ;]
