Edgar Graham Daylight
- Ph.D. in software engineering at IMEC, Leuven (2000–2006).
- Post-doc researcher at Virginia Tech (2006–2007).
- MS in Logic at the University of Amsterdam (2007–2009).
- Researcher in the History of Computing (2009–today).
The incentive for this blog in my words:
Just as an extensive account of Einstein's ideas aids us in grasping the constituents of our universe, research of Dijkstra's numerous writings helps crystallize some of the most important ideas underlying our digital society.
