Here's what I'm up to:

  • Living in Bay Area, with wife and two daughters (7, 5)
  • Working at Automattic mostly on new core editor for WordPress, and machine learning
  • Learning linocut and block printing
  • Goal to read 25 books this year, see My Goodreads for latest, currently 3 books ahead
  • Starting to running more, goal is to run a sub 2-hour half-marathon at Oktoberun on Oct 29, 2018
  • Studying Spanish using Duolingo, supposedly 20% fluent.
  • Podcasts – I listen to podcasts when running & driving around, my current list


Hardware and software I use:

  • Computer: My desktop is an iMac which I finally updated to High Sierra, meh. My laptop is a Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition running Ubuntu GNOME, see my review.  
  • Programming: Mostly working in Javascript these days, which let's just say I really like Golang. Text editing is in Vim and Visual Studio Code.  
  • Productivity: I primarily use Microsoft's OneNote for writing, long term notes, see my article why it kicks ass. I use good old pen & paper for daily lists.
  • Phone: LG G6, a great flagship Android phone and cheaper than Samsungs
  • Digital Camera: Panasonic GX85 with a 20mm f/1.7 lens. I downgraded to a micro four/thirds for a smaller kit.
  • Film Camera: Nikon FM2 but shooting less film after finishing 52 rolls project
