title: About

This is my personal site. Nothing on here represents anything but my opinions and work. Thanks for stopping by!

Prelude

As for me, I'm a husband and father primarily. To support those persuits I work for Mozilla as a web developer. It's far-and-away the best company for which I've ever worked, or really ever thought about working. It's an entire organization dedicated to the freedom, accessibility, privacy, and security of The Web. I just love that. Everything we do is open source (from Firefox to all the websites), but beyond that it's planned and discussed in the open and liberally licensed. I could go on and on, and in some post I'm sure I will. Suffice to say that I like it there, and if you're similarly inclined I can't more highly recommend applying.

The code for this site is licensed MIT, and the content under a Creative Commons share-alike license linked in the footer.

Colophon

Who knows what the word "colophon" even means‽ I guess we do now, but still. Sites seem to have them now, so here's mine.

This site is hosted at Linode (referral link) using Nginx running on Ubuntu Linux. I use Pelican to generate it from Markdown and reStructured Text files. The code for the site is open and available for your perusal and/or help (PRs welcome ;). Pelican itself is powered by Python; a beautiful and powerful programming language, and the one I use most in my work. I deploy the site using a git post-recieve hook and the excellent git-deploy tool for setting up such things.

The theme for the site is based on Sundown for Pelican. I've integrated Font Awesome for all the fancy icons that magically match my color scheme.

Denouement

If you have questions, comments, suggestions, funny gifs, or angry gramatical corrections, please click one of the links that looks like a bird and let me know on The Twitters. If you're not Twitterally inclined, I always appreciate a nice issue or pull-request filing at the Github repo.

Thanks again for reading.
