Lately, I've noticed that I've devoted a lot of my time to open source projects or projects at work. While these are important, the kind of work these involve can get a bit repetitive at times, and I haven't really allocated a lot of time for “play” programming. By that, I mean writing things for fun, or experimenting with new things. To quote Albert Einstein:

Play is the highest form of research.

So in the coming weeks/months, I'm going to be setting aside time for “play programming.” This might include playing with a new mobile OS. It might include playing with different programming languages. It might even include new frontiers of programming that I don't have a lot of experience with.

If you're interested in following my experiences, I'll be documenting them here, so stay tuned. =)
