I'm a human bean that believes that we should all be excellent to each other.

Husband and father are essential parts of my identity.

I believe that technology can be a powerful force for good, but in 2020 is mostly broken.

I love many things. Here are some:

Happy corporatism 

G*ogle photos and Amaz*n are cheerful today.

Even typing on a crappy $15 wireless keyboard from Amazon is infinitely better than typing on my phone screen.

Like, torrents are things, right? But they're static.

And websites are technically just pointers to a webserver - the content can change at the same address.

I've been thinking recently about information and protocols. SMTP is a very good protocol for async communication. Git or other DVCS are good when you need to keep historical information around.

We can make ceramic tiles that withstand re-entry, but not some kind of fake leather??!
