Values

  • In these times of Musk-ian tech awfulness, I still have the faith of a kid from the “Tron” generation that computing can be a force for good.
  • Although I enjoy new and groundbreaking JavaScript frameworks, I try to remain humbled by timeless computing principles. I dip into Don Knuth’s The Art of Computer Programming and stuff like that once in a while.
  • Being a book writer I like to write clean code that communicates ideas clearly elegantly. It should be easy for the next coder to understand.
  • I don’t think people like being tracked. I like to use alternative, privacy-focused Web software that protects users.
  • I am interested in energy-efficient software that won’t eat up your phone battery.
  • As much as I love utopian ideas, everything about Web3 and blockchain gives me the heebie-jeebies, sorry!
  • As much as I like the hardcore engineering challenges of iOS and Android apps, I prefer the democratic ideals of the open Web.
  • I would prefer it engagement algorithms would encourage love and kindness instead of unleashing worldwide fascism.
