My name is Daniel Thomason – I was an economist, then an escape room founder, and now I’m in Berlin learning new things.

I decided that the best way to learn was to find projects to complete. And if I was going to take on projects, why not solve problems while I did so?

This, then, is a record of my journey. I’m committed to solving one problem per week throughout 2017. Each post will outline the problem, my brainstorming process for finding solutions, and the steps I take to solve it. I hope that it will serve as a good document for future reference and also a method for learning from the process.
