What Do I Do?

I need this question this week. Getting into that mode where I feel like I don’t understand what I do, and what little I do understand I feel isn’t original or interesting.

I’ve always been a dabbler. It’s hard to get myself to push deeply into something. Not because I can’t do it, but because I feel like I get 90% of the enjoyment
out of doing the “easy” part, and want to move on to the next thing. I’m getting the familiar restless feeling that comes with wanting to move on to the next thing.

What are we doing with Glenside? I’m doing some maintenance work for the PLDI evaluation. But beyond that. What’s next? I want to expand the Relay integration, and experiment with other optimizations that can be done in Relay using Glenside/egraphs. But we don’t even know what those are. I don’t know what optimizations we’re targeting. It’s making me despair a bit. I have some ideas, but nothing concrete.

What Am I Writing?

Google paper, Glenside 2 paper, FPGA synthesis paper.
