Many thanks to the first (and currently only) commenter of my recent post. I tend to get in the process of thinking too much and second guessing myself, which leads to a lot of inaction.
I now have a project that I will be moving forward on. I'm going to start developing a grammar for the Lojban language using the ANTLR parser in Java 5. Since Lojban is a parsable language, it would be useful for communication with an AI, which is kinda why it was created in the first place. Building a parser will help me learn the grammar myself.
There are a lot of benefits with this project. First, it gets me back into programming. Second, I get to learn a new language. Third, the results will be useful for any future work I do in AI.
