About Me

My name is Nicholas ‘Nick’ ‘Nickerbocker’ ‘Big Daddy Nick’  Robison, I’m an NLM Informatics Pre-Doctoral Training Fellow working on my PhD in Biomedical and Health Informatics at the University of Washington School of Medicine.

I spend my time toying with a variety of technologies from geospatial analysis, to high performance computing. My main focus is on scalable research systems for non-technical users, and emerging trends in data privacy.

This blog is a collection of snippets from my life, for those who are far away, musing on things I find interesting, and a dumping ground for what I wish to preserve for posterity. It’ll be laced with a fair amount of humor and tongue-in-cheek pop (at least at some point in time) culture references; however, don’t let that detract from how insightful and profound  I think these posts are.

Also, opinions expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of employers, affiliates, friends, or people I flirt with on the bus.

So, in the words of the great poet Snoop Dogg Lion

  1. Nick,
    Hello, I have been checking your site re installing SAGA and how to comply files on OS X but finds it difficult how to start?
    Particularly, the first two simple steps as you mentioned…but how to do it? Do I need to install Quartz first to anything, could you please suggest. I must say that I found the blog very interesting.
