When I was about eight, my father brought home two things that would later define my creative life: an Atari 2600 and a VHS copy of Koyaanisqatsi.  The first sparked my love of all things digital, and it is quite possibly the reason I became a programmer. The second would come to symbolize my quest to figure out just exactly what we’re supposed to be doing on this big old ball of dust, and how exactly to balance one’s life between productivity and peace.

This is an attempt to codify some of the lessons I’ve learned since then. Here you’ll find everything from Linux howtos to book reviews, Bash one-liners to philosophical essays. Each page will behave as a personal wiki, to be updated as new information comes down the pipes.
