Status Update

It's been a long, long time since I've written anything. Here are some brief notes on current status:

Family

I am married and have two kids. Twin daughters, to be more specific. They are wonderful and give me a good reason to keep my nose clean.

We have a dog, Starbuck, named after the character from the reimagined Battlestar Galactica. I really have no idea why we did that, but it works.

Work

I am happily employed at Simple, focusing on technical operations. They are a remote-friendly company, and I live and work out of my home in Oklahoma City.

Current Readings

Currently trying on making sense of the Satipatthana Sutta in both theory and practice. I'm leaning on the following works:

Political Leanings

I'm still pretty damned liberal, regardless of my cynical trips.

Side Projects

canary.io is my baby. I've neglected it over the past month as I transitioned to my new job, but it has a lot of good things coming up.

For a preview, keep an eye on gorsuch/canary, my experimental reboot of the service offering.

Development Environment

I do most of work inside a Vagrant instance, maintained by Ansible. I ssh in, and use tmux, vim and irssi to get things done. I don't like to customize.

Programming Language of Choice

go wherever applicable. I'm still a newb, but the language and community have been wonderful so far.
