About me

I like to think about systems. I have a childlike fascination and curiosity for all phenomena. I find few tasks as rewarding as helping those around me. If I’m not smiling or laughing, I’m deeply in thought. ;)

I practice ataraxia. It is hard to budge my equanimity.

Systems

Systems are everywhere. Fundamentally, software engineering is the creation, understanding, and modification of formal systems. However, systems also manifest themselves in far more ordinary cases. Take for example, motes of dust floating in a sunbeam. This is an equally fascinating, elegant, and complex system to study.
