Now — 2024

Updated: Sunday, 18 Feb 2024

The first six weeks of the year have been intensely busy. Looking back over my notes, I’m realizing that this might be an emerging trend; the last four years have all had similar first quarters at work: massive change, incredible team-wide effort to meet new needs, long hours. If the trend holds, things will have settled down by March…

Personal Projects

These are things that I want to finish before the end of the year.
