    I'm a noob, but my interests are open source, neuroscience, computational neuroscience etc. Might get a blog running if anyone shows up.

    That sounds cool. I have started studying those topics in my spare time but I'm just a middle school noob so can't really help.

    Congrats. You're where I want to be in a few years

    If you want to start a blog you should definitely do it. It would be great for your CV. I could see if I recommend it to people I know but there aren't many :/.

    You might have better luck if you try programming stack exchange, if you haven't already.

    Have you programmed anything? I want to participate in google summer of code, hence why I want to keep a blog related to that.

    I am I plan on doing an undergraduate degree in computer science, and then perhaps going into a field involving computational neuroscience or artificial intelligence, as I find both fields really interesting and often find myself reading books about them in my spare time.

    I'm also currently doing my EPQ on artificial intelligence!

    Cool, Computer Science is the best! Can you suggest a few books you thought were really interesting?

    You can do projects, build a game and things like that (using say html5, javascript). That way you learn a lot.

    "The Cambridge Handbook of Artificial Intelligence" is the book I am currently reading for my EPQ and it is excellent; generally a really interesting read. "Neuroscience: Exploring the Brain" has been great so far, although I have only read the chapters on the brain and behaviour as that is what interests me the most (I will definitely get around to reading the entire book in due time).

    Hope I helped
