I'm a big fan of Aronofsky's especially of his "Requiem for a Dream" and his π movie.
"Restate my assumptions: One, Mathematics is the language of nature. Two: everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. Three: if you graph the numbers of any system, patterns emerge. Therefore, there are patterns everywhere in nature. Evidence: the cycling of disease epidemics; the wax and wane of caribou populations; sun spot cycles; the rise and fall of the Nile. So, what about the stock market? The universe of numbers that represents the global economy. Millions of hands at work, billions of minds. A vast network, screaming with life. An organism. A natural organism. My hypothesis: within the stock market, there is a pattern as well... Right in front of me... hiding behind the numbers. Always has been" - Max Cohen

It has been a while since posting anything new so why not add a bit of colour to this page and introduce you to WebCanvas. In case you have not heard of this Web 2.0 site, this is one of my pet projects which aims to create The World's Largest Collaborative Painting.

Loads of things have been happening since moving to London (from Guildford), however updating my personal site has not been one of them! Nonetheless, this server has a new incarnation and is as powerful as ever. This used to run on a modded Xbox, with another one functioning as a shadow backup! These were the cheapest, most compact and silent machines at the time...

After four hard working and very enriching years, my degree has reached its end!
Achieving a First Class Honours, with an average of 81% or 82% (depending if the industrial placement year is counted or not), I can feel the serenity of a mission well accomplished. Now is Chillaxing time before moving to London to start my Ph.D. at Imperial... Feels Great :)
