Writing under pressure

Guest blogging for the NUS SoC blog has taught me that it is important to set some goals for blogging. Having only one week to write made me think hard about the topics I wanted to cover in the limited time.  I contributed a total of five posts, which you can find here. I’m not sure what will happen to the NUS SoC blog in the future, so I’m considering moving my posts to this blog for safe keeping.

The ability to write well is critical to doing research, because the best ideas are useless unless they can be communicated to the larger community. It is not just about describing your idea but also providing the right amount of background information and motivation to the reader so that he/she can appreciate its usefulness.
