Author and his dog Chai

This blog aims to teach and amuse people interested in computers. I distill practical computer science into clear prose illustrated by diagrams to bring you the essence of each topic. No filler, no obtuse language, no sloppy presentation. These posts are here to serve you, respecting your time, patience, and intelligence. Treats for the geek mind.

I love to write and to know that I’ve helped others learn. If there is something you’d like to see covered, let me know. At the moment I’m gathering material for a book on computer internals, so there’s some focus on that, but I like to mix things up. I also write about software development, programming tools, and the industry.

Thank you for reading! I invite you to subscribe via RSS and follow me. If you’re in Colorado, feel free to hit me up for coffee or snowboarding. I’m often in Brazil as well, usually BH or Rio, and happy to meet fellow .br nerds.
