this is not an update title
The purpose of the too-clever-by-half title is to meekly acknowledge that I haven't been getting a lot of software written. I've been preparing for the Casualty Actuarial Society's Exam One, to be taken on Friday, December 1.
My dream is that information currency will enable sophisticated financial engineering mechanisms to be applied to the management of information. My hope is that actuarial qualification will be a way to practice financial risk management and financial product development in a way that incorporates new technology and innovative approaches. Sounds delightful, no?
