I'm Brandon, a tallish software engineer in this illustrious croissant city. I was raised throughout the Gulf South by a pair of high school sweethearts from Mobile, but after ten years, this is home. There's territory around here yet I'm anxious to chart. Mostly east of Mid-city.
Reading: I aspire to get through The Economist, which is tough or impossible when the world keeps pumping out a hundred pages worth of stuff weekly.

The flavor of this season is tech/software topics though I dabble into the humanities; not much fiction lately; David Foster Wallace essays; Dennett; popular math and science books
