hi, world! this is my first blog post. i’m hoping to use this as part creative outlet, part self-encouragement to see technical projects through, and part place to document my learning so i can go back and look at all the things i forgot, one day.
to those of you who don’t know me, here’s a brief introduction: my name is mat! i’m a communist, a partner, and generally (at the very least) something of a curmudgeon. i have a number of strong opinions, especially about technology and politics. i have a love for art, and, in another life, i really wish that i’d studied philosophy or music.
if you have ideas for me to blog about, feel free to reach out to me at mess [at] yelp [dot] com.
