One of the things I wanted to do with this blog was describe those areas of academia that were particularly surprising to me for one reason or another. I've spent most of my professional life in industry, so I have a bit of an outsider's viewpoint of the academic world.
These posts will be meant primarily for those of you in the game industry who are curious about what it's like on the other side. Students may also gain an appreciation for what their professors go through (we really are normal people, just like you, honest).
Experienced professors will probably look at these and either find them blindingly obvious or hopelessly naive. That is, more or less, the point :-)
