Issues with how we teach

Throughout my life, I used to ask myself, “How do people invent something?”. In my case, I was specifically concerned with Maths, Physics, and Computer Science.

I would ask myself, “I know how to use these formulas but how did someone come up with these formulas?”.

Research Writeup: Deanonymization and Proximity Detection Using Wi-Fi

Hi everyone! If you have been following my blog for a while you will know that I did research at Colgate University over the summers. My research was on Wi-Fi and how I can do some interesting stuff using it. The university just published its annual catalogue of all the research projects which happened over the summer.  My research was done under the mentorship of Aaron Gember-Jacobson. I could not have asked for a better advisor. Here is the writeup of my project:

I got to know about the video via Hacker News (you should definitely follow it if you don’t!). Continue reading Review: The History of Unix Video

Privacy & Why it Matters

⚠️ Long post about privacy. Doesn’t relate to Python at all. Do read if you care and want to learn more about how your privacy is being violated.

Last couple of weeks have totally changed my whole viewpoint on privacy. I was also a part of that bandwagon in which people say that “Why should I be worried about privacy when I don’t have anything to hide or I don’t do anything illegal?”. You start taking it seriously only when your privacy is breached. Let me reiterate, privacy is a fundamental right and should be granted to everyone. Continue reading Privacy & Why it Matters

2017 was good, 2018 will be even better

This is not a programming or Python related post. This is more of my personal reflection on the year 2017. I decided to reflect and evaluate my year and see what I got done and what could have been better. Below I have listed some of the stuff which I was able to get done this year.
