A nuclear engineering student from the University of Wisconsin in Madison has started a blog titled NYRTIN KOTISIVU, which roughly translates to “Nerd’s Homepage”. Since I like nuclear nerds and geeks, I added it to my growing list of blog links and recommend that you go over and say hello. One of the hardest parts about being a blogger is getting into the routine of regularly putting thoughts into words and putting the words onto the net. It never hurts to get some encouragement early.
BTW – Nyrtin Kotisivu makes no bones about the fact that some of the posts are going to cover hard core technical topics – how is this for a premise designed to attract people who are interested in things other than television and celebrities:
I will try using this blog as a technical log of those things which seem especially valuable. My goal will be every Sunday morning to browse a recent volume of a related journal for relevant material; upon finding an article of interest, I shall read it over coffee and then recount the very basics of it via this blog.
I personally look forward to the educational opportunities.
Hat tip to Dan Yurman at Idaho Samizdat: Nuke Notes for the pointer.
Note: I was purposely vague in my description of the blogger behind Nyrtin Kotisivu. The profile linked to the blog has no name and little information, as if the blogger wished to remain anonymous. I decided to respect that wish for now. However, there is a link on the blog to a story in his university’s newsletter that provides a lot more detail about his identity, including his name.
