Hi, I’m Brad. I’m a software engineering manager living in Austin, Texas. I work with mostly web-related products, specializing in APIs, server-side development and software architecture. I prefer working with Ruby, Rails, CoffeeScript and other lithe, powerful tools.
I’m also a humanist, a libertarian, an atheist, a nudist and a careful thinker. Many of my views differ from the mainstream, but all are grounded in a simple set of rules that most everyone can appreciate.
I write medium-format essays here on a wide range of topics. My hope is to give my readers occasion to think a bit more deeply and carefully about topics that do not typically receive the type of attention I think they deserve.
