I read so many papers today. Ph.D. theses, too. Though I have to say: theses are way more interesting to read than their short, bland counterparts that supposedly grease the engines of scientific discovery. These things have a full introduction that lays the groundwork for everything thereafter, and it’s all chock full of references along the way. Seriously, I don’t know why I haven’t been reading these things in bulk before now.
Man this takes forever.
