The fellow in the photo. Programmer, professional paranoid, clever playfulness enthusiast (computers and beyond!). A practitioner (engineer) by trade, quietly morphing into a theoretician.1

I am on github, where some of the software I develop is hosted. Other attempts to find me on “social media” are, I’m afraid, futile.2 And while on that topic… Edward Snowden put it best:
``Businesses that make money by collecting and selling detailed records of private lives were once plainly described as “surveillance companies.” Their rebranding as “social media” is the most successful deception since the Department of War became the Department of Defense.''3
Three notes. 1) If the top black navigation bar is not visible, move the cursor to near the top of the browser’s viewport, and it will be shown.
2) In what the texts I write are concerned, it is my personal choice to always refer to my hypothetical reader as “he”. The reason for doing so is explained here.
3) Any updates I might make to a particular page are usually indicated at the bottom of said page.
Table of Contents (a.k.a. Site Map)
Blah. For short remarks, about no particular topic. In other words it’s like a blog, except it isn’t.
Things written by others. Beyond the essays and remarks I write, I also keep a local copy of things written by others, but that turned out to be so difficult to find, that I decided to keep a local copy, at this humble (digital) abode of mine. Furthermore, I keep a log of the reports on Julian Assange’s extradition show trial.
Software. I also write software.
LaTeX. Then there is the bottomless pit of LaTeX. We have:
The templates that I use for most tasks.
Some package related info I collected over the years.
I can only hope these notes help make said pit a little less bottomless. Finally here is also:
Personal notes. I keep some ancillary notes on the stuff I read/research. I write them mostly for my own “bookkeeping” of acquired knowledge, but maybe they will be useful to others.
Photography & Travel. I enjoy writing about my travels—which, in addition to writing proper, also involves quite a few photographies.
Siteroll. Last but not least, there is the list of online sites that I occasionally take a look at.
