jmoiron plays the blues
My name is Jason Moiron, and I'm a 30 year old computer programmer from New York City. I work at turntable.fm. My interests include:
- Taking Photos
- Gourmet Cuisine
This blog is written using Go, a compiled open source language in heavy development at Google. The code is available for free online. While I use Python for my day job, I felt the desire to branch out and try something different. The entries are stored in mongodb and rendered via my own template system called Mandira.
I am not a designer, but I play a UX advocate in real life. The design here is a mix of things cribbed from various influences, including Apple, Tim Van Damme, Dustin Curtis, Mark Otto, with inspiration from many others.
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child, but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
I have been blogging for over 10 years. Much of that history was here on jmoiron.net. The first few years I had cobbled together a web journal in bash on my university's free hosting account, and shortly thereafter I moved to a unparked and forgotten domain nondeus.org. I had built up almost 400 posts.
So where are they all?
While true digicide is essentially impossible, I've decided after a lot of writing that it was time to cut the fat; to trim the burdens of a long digital legacy, and move on.
