Yesssss! Buhay na po ang aming blogsite. I’ve been thinking about having this in our site for quite a while now, although we never really got around to doing it until now. I’ve had my reservations about blogging online, because I also keep a private “electronic” diary which is of course where I pour all my thoughts and ideas and what-have-you. My sister tells me it’s sort of therapeutic (at least for her)–in this wired world, it’s the closest thing to having a 24-h online friend who will listen to all your woes and joys.
Let me explain the name for this site (for the sake of any non-Filipinos who happen to drop by). “Salamin” is a Filipino word that means both “mirror” and “glass.” Blogs are like that, mirror reflections of what we are, what we think.
I’ve just submitted my abstract online to the ICMAT-IUMRS-ICAM 2005 conference which will be held in July in Singapore. I was thinking about not going anymore, but then I finally got some noteworthy results some two weeks back. I consulted our group leader, and he gave me the go-ahead to write the abstract. Here’s the url of the conference: http://www.mrs.org.sg/icmat2005/
Notification of acceptance of abstract will be within this month. Here’s crossing my fingers!
