There are few speeches that cause me to read them multiple times. Dr. Hamming’s “You and Your Research” resonates deeply with me and is one of my favorites. Hamming, defines a work ethic and sprinkles the talk with antedotes that are both kind and relatable.

I like the idea of reserving Friday’s for thinking about deep problems.
Have a good weekend.
