Editor’s Notes

Throughout 2012 and so far in 2013, while keeping you up to date on the life, times, and mind of Damola Mabogunje, The Red String has also attempted to answer some of life’s questions: covering topics ranging from relationships, to The Personality Type of God.

In this year and a half, almost two, The Red String has remained entertaining, insightful, and thought-provoking: Damola’s awareness of his surroundings having clearly grown since the blog began. There are multiple articles about Nigeria (where art and creativity seem to happen everyday), and it was comforting to hear positive news about my relatively small and highly populated country. In particular, I was happy to hear about artists like SugaBelly, and websites like Kuluya.com (on which the game Mama Put kept me hilariously entertained for hours).

Although I disagree with Damola in his article Nature vs. Morality, The Red String is not about agreement, but rather, giving you an insight into the mind of a young man who, more often than not keeps phone calls to a minimum, and responds “nothing” to the question “What’s been up?”

So enjoy as you read about Damola’s various thoughts and experiences. Learn about why he prefers to say “no“ to requests, and see what he gained from volunteering with the disabled. For a rare and true example of living with Sickle Cell Anaemia, also read his article titled Reinforcement Learning.

I hope that you will all continue to enjoy The Red String as much as I, and as always, please leave your comments on the blog, and like us on Facebook (or any of that other social media mumbo jumbo).
