Hello (Again) World!
Apr 6, 2019
In 2011, as I started programming more and becoming increasingly frustrated with academia, I started a blog called Idol Star Astronomer. It chronicles budget cuts, LED projects, my departure from academia, and a lot of opinions about programming, docker, and the cloud. As time went on, I found myself writing less and less. Eventually I thought about redesigning the site and writing shorter pieces, but I was lazy and working with a very demanding startup, so my website just languished.
I also found I was uncomfortable with the old name, since I have left astronomy behind. I left that startup at the end of 2018 and now feel like I have a job with more normal hours which will once again allow me to write. I’m not sure if you will find this blog interesting (who reads blogs these days, right?), but feel free to tag along with me.
