Hello, I'm a software engineer by profession and I live in the US. I've worked a lot with Python in recent years. I like many topics across computing: system design, programming languages, distributed computing, user interfaces and databases.

This site is focussed on a specific interest I have in looking for deep ideas, models and interfaces that simplify and ease our interaction with computers—whether it be programming or another creative endeavor. I feel we are stifled by an emergent environment of tedium in computing—a wall of ceremony and bureaucracy we must always climb, before getting to see even a tiny drop of our creative idea. I believe there is much yet left to be unlocked, discovered and invented if we make creation easier.
