My name is Alex. I do science, write code, and manage computers.
Sometimes I write about those things, and sometimes I write about other things too. I like the idea of applying ideas and approaches from one area to explore, describe, and explain phenomena observed in another. Like turning a sheet into a toga, or using a fork as a tiny spade - that sort of thing. I'm also interested in determining the best way to explain and present things, both through language and through visual representation, which is one of the motivations for this blog.
I had an old blog at this URL which this one replaces. I've transferred a few of those original posts over, but many of them didn't seem worth moving.
