Even older posts, dug up from the Paleocene:
These are practically archaeology, this is almost 15 years ago now:
- Rob Watts, check out his website. He’s now the CTO at Wonderbly, after a Machiavellian power struggle.
- Dennis Ogbe: this guy has next level attention to detail. Great resource. And apparently he works at NASA now? Congratulations Dennis.
- Xah Lee (ergoemacs.org) of course gets huge props. Incredibly useful resource for newcomers to Emacs Lisp.
- Daniel Gola makes beautiful art and paintings.
- Doug Pagani writes (wrote) about statistics and data analysis.
- Yogesh Khatri (swiftforensics.com) blogs about OS forensics and security. Varied and interesting stuff.
- Paul Julius Martinez created plaintextsports.com, and his website looks good.

Resumes of friends
- Jesse Zwaan is a guy he codes things. He’s pretty good eh.
- Josh McMillan is a competent tech consultant in the UK. Also my friend. Right, Josh? He just said he agrees.
I used to listen to a lot of NPR. These were my highlight episodes:
- The Free Food Market (2017): The power of money
- So, Should We Recycle? (2019): The myth of recycling (plastic)
- Waste Land (2020): The provenance of the plastic recycling myth
People often write these off because they either don’t like NPR, or they don’t like things with Money in the name. If that’s you, give it a try.
This American Life
- Testosterone (2002)
- One Last Thing Before I Go (Act 1, 2016): Japanese survivors of the Fukushima tsunami dealing with grief
What they say about me
You look like you came out of seawater.
— Vagrant in Tompkins Square Park
I didn’t get his name, it was mostly a one sided conversation. More like an improvised monologue. Put it on a stage in Bushwick, charge people $15 and the NYT will say it’s groundbreaking.
You’re so good with lists.
— Masha Zhak
Reasons she’s wrong:
- She’s a woman
Why does nobody get your jokes, Hraban?
— Rob Watts
It’s awkward to put that quote here because this stuff isn’t funny but in real life I am pretty funny.
The boring stuff
