This page tracks what I’m doing right now. Last updated January 2018.
Here is a list of my main current projects:
- Teaching! Two grad classes: Fundamentals of Computer Systems, and Cybersecurity and the Internet of Things
- Researching: Academic Publishing in Practice and Theory
- Catching up on my review queue — lots of new products reviewed, and more on the queue, so be sure to sign up for the newsletter to get periodic updates with all the links: here’s how to get on the list
I’ll keep this page updated when there is a new project added or an older one archived. Note that you can also keep up with even more timely updates and interests by following me on Twitter @kendallgiles.
In general I like to stay fairly over-allocated on interesting projects that allow me to learn, grow, create, and do.
So far, I think Gary Vaynerchuk has quite hit the nail on the head regarding what is the best use of the short slice of time each of us have here on Earth. When someone used the excuse that they were too old to start a new business/project/career, he said (my paraphrase):
Are you kidding? Look, even if you are 60 years old, the life expectancy these days is something like 100 years. So even if you are 60 years old, you’ve got 40 more years to start something new and do something meaningful in your life. What, at 60 you are just going to give up, play golf, and watch TV for the next 40 years?
I agree. It’s never too late to start a new project, pursue a dream, or do something meaningful.
Start right now.
