I’m a software engineer based in Berkeley, California. But I used to be a kid learning to code in the late 90s. So that’s what this blog is about: Memories of Silicon Valley at the turn of the millennium. Taking things apart and putting them back together. Algorithms.

And here’s an obligatory disclaimer: Views expressed on this site are my own and not those of my employer.
