At any point in time, each of my projects is in one of the following states:
The next question is `Why do I expose all of these incomplete projects to the Web?' The answer to this question has to do with search engines and electronic communities. With the advent of freely available search engines, it becomes possible for people who have common interests to find one another. If you are lucky, there is a good chance that the area you are interested in has a network news group. For interest areas not covered by a network news group, you can go to a search engine and hopefully find some people who have published material on the subject and start interacting with the publisher via E-mail.
This is all nice in theory, but does it happen in practice? The answer is `yes!' many times over. For example, some people have stumbled across some of my very incomplete work on rocketry and we have started to collaborate as a result. Similarly, my incomplete work on stepper motors has generated a number of E-mails. Also, somebody ran across my train pages and we've been collaborating in that area as well.
Anyhow, the bottom line for me is that I have no problems with letting you look at my projects as they slowly progress and some people have derived a benefit from seeing them. As long as people can easily figure out which ones are "work in progress", there should be no real harm done.
