bobr_babizon posted an article, a machine translation of a Kinetic Segment Tree post in my Korean blog. Given this interest in my small Korean blog, I felt obliged to introduce it.

In most of my undergrad period, I was sponsored by the generous Samsung Software Membership, where one of their remarkable features was to fund "individual research projects" — In short, each month, I write an article on interesting stuff, and they will pay me 500,000 KRW per article. Amazing, as it motivates me to learn new stuff and also get paid.

Here is the full list of posts written by that initiative.

Not all posts are good. Sometimes, I need to keep up with the deadline and rush the post; sometimes, I write stuff in specific interest; sometimes, the topic is too hard and I only obtain a superficial understanding. But there are some posts, which I think are the best posts on their subject matter for CF audience if translated into English:

Sometimes I actually posted them in English:

Why are all these posts in Korean? It's because the sponsor wanted such a way — otherwise, I'd actually write all of them in English. So that's pretty sad, and I don't think I will ever try to translate them, but I hope someone would still find them helpful.

    I never tried to write about things I know well since I'd end up learning little and there's not much point for effort. (This is also a good reason why I don't write the top tree tutorial requested by xiaowuc1.) So, yeah, most of the topics were something that I was not aware of at the time of writing.

    Do you have clinical depression or are you just a troll? At this point I cannot tell.

    And speaking of blogs, when I started using CF, I also looked at CF blogs with half of the page having math symbols I do not comprehend and having pre-pre-pre-requisites that I did not know. 1.5 years later I was reading blogs like this. The difference is I took inspiration from people better than me and blogs I do not understand rather than being dejected.
