Something funny about algorithm is…um..sometime you feel like looking at something interesting from a distance. It is irritating because you have to go there but somehow you don’t know how to get there. It is NOT just about HOW to get there, but also…WHAT to make you go there.
It is maybe why they called it algorithm. The sense or intelligence to breakdown problem by examine it’s part into SEQUENTIAL way of solution. The algorithm way I think is interesting because it always come with logic first. Linear logic. That is the difference with designing. Sometime, or most of time, it’s just pop-up in our head without reasoning. Best design not always come with excellent reasoning of what or how, but excellent computer program always comes with par excellent lines of codes.
The algorithm is so simple I often forget about it, which I later regret. So here I am writing it out:
1. Say what the problem is.
2. Think of a solution.
3. Do the solution.
4. See if it works.
The more a particular aspect of your life seems so basic and obvious you would never think of applying the algorithm to it, the more you probably should.
The algorithm is recursive.
Algorithm. oh Algorithm~
