I’m quite excited to be talking at CascadiaFest this summer about the work I’ve been doing on scanning the Internet. My talk proposal is archived here. The cool end-results are still getting ready for publication, but one of the code modules I’m pretty excited about that happened in the process is ip2country.
I’ve spent the last couple of weeks visiting Southeast Asia. It was my first trip south of the equator, and my first visit to several new countries. I was particularly impressed by Indonesia, which is an incredible place.
I got up to Whistler for the first (and likely last) skiing of the season this weekend. It’s been a low snow year – enough that the local areas have already started closing, and whistler had given up on their first lift worth of runs and had manmade snow from mid-mountain down. The skiing was… Continue reading Whistler
Took a bike ride up to the north end of the lake yesterday to celebrate the unusually clement weather. It was great to get outside again.
Return to Seattle
It’s only due to the times I’ve spent away that I’ve realized how great it is to live in Seattle. I’m settling back in after a fall on the east coast, and getting ready for a productive winter & spring in Seattle. In particular, I’m excited to get back to building codeforseattle.org, freedom.js, and measurement.
I had a great start of the year visiting Switzerland. I got to meet a bunch of people at ETH, and hear about some of the cool projects that they’re working on – like Barrelfish, a new operating system that can better scale to machines with many CPUs. Switzerland as a country is very nice… Continue reading Zurich
Code for Seattle 2015
An exercise I’m in the process of completing is thinking about how we’d like to see the code for seattle organization grow and evolve in 2015. For reference, the document is beginning to taking shape and will live for posterity on the organization website. I’m really excited about the trajectory that the code for america… Continue reading Code for Seattle 2015
Spent the weekend in Ithaca visiting college friends. Somewhat colder than the city, but not miserably so. A very pleasant break from the routine, although work has certainly come crashing back this week. Come see me at TA3M this evening!
Visited the Stormking Sculpture Garden north of New York City today with friends from College who have made their way out east. This part of the country can also be pretty, although in a different and much flatter way than Seattle. It has also already gotten colder than a normal winter, which is quite a… Continue reading Stormking
