Pinned toot

I'm a computer science researcher at Ink & Switch where we are developing concepts like local-first software. I've worked as a game developer (GBA/DS), oceanographer (Arctic), and built software at startups (Songbird, Heroku). I know a lot about Postgres. I'm fond of cooking, biking, brewing, and board games.

@rek I've been milling corn to make masa for a couple of years now. The Corona or Victoria (no relation) brand hand grinders are reliable cast iron devices that can grind wet grains (unlike flour mills) and I'm very fond of mine. To add a little mechanical advantage, you can rotate the mechanism with your power drill... if it has enough torque. Nixtamalizing corn is magic, dry corn keeps forever, and fresh tortilla are always delicious.

We ran into quite a few problems with evolving data formats building local-first software, and decided to do something about it:
