+As I’m currently working to get a master’s degree in university, I had to write
+a seminar paper. I got lucky and the topic “Chatty Things – Making the Internet
+of Things Readily Usable with XMPP” sounded very interesting to me :-) As the
+title suggests, the paper describes how the [XMPP][] protocol can be employed to
+facilitate user access to smart devices in the [Internet of Things][IoT], and
+some thoughts on preventing information overflow on the user. If this sounds
+interesting to you as well, you should read my [paper][] or scroll through the
+[presentation slides][pres] ;-) The paper is licensed as [CC BY-ND 3.0][ccbynd]
+(of course, you shouldn’t use it for *your own* paper :P), the presentation
+slides are [CC BY-SA 3.0][ccbysa], and if you want to re-use it, have a look at
+the [L<sup>A</sup>T<sub>E</sub>X code][code].

+Apart from the matter handled in the paper, I also acquired some additional
+* Learn to motivate myself. The [Pomodoro technique][pomodoro], in conjunction
+  with chocolatey sweets for extrinsic gratification, seems to work quite well
+  for me.
+* Learn to use [Ti<em>k</em>Z][tikz] to draw figures in
+  L<sup>A</sup>T<sub>E</sub>X. I already wanted to use it for a while, but it
+  seemed complex and have a steep learning curve. It turns out that the
+  Ti<em>k</em>Z/PGF manual is very illustrative, and has an exhaustive index for
+  easy skimming.
+* Learn to deliver a good(?) talk. I recently discovered [][] by Zach
+  Holman, and apparently the tips he gives there seem to work and I felt much
+  more secure than on previous talks. Also: a lot of practice. And test
+  sessions. And I ditched his advice on slide design, I like my slides
+  with latex-beamer :P
