It is possible that this blog’s naming scheme could be construed as being a bit egotistical. I just want to reclaim my name from popular culture!
But enough of that. Who am I?
I’m a 23 year old who immigrated to the USA from England when I was 17. I possess many useful insights into the ways that Americans love Received Pronunciation. (The accent thing may come up more. I have anecdotes, I swear to dog.)
I’m a programmer. I think the first program I ever wrote was (from a tutorial) a calculator in Objective C on a NeXT cube – a revelation that might possibly date me. I didn’t really get into that, though, and it took the discovery of PHP to make me actually realize that, hey, I could actually write useful things. Since then I’ve moved on to Python and Lua as my languages of choice, and am dabbling in Ruby.
I play World of Warcraft. This rather ties into my previous point, since I’m fairly sure that I’ve spent more time writing addons than actually playing. It takes all sorts. Anyway, it’s a thing I intend to talk about, so I disclose it here.
I recognize that this blending of topics makes this blog horribly unmarketable, and I am committing many a sin against recommended traffic-building practices here. Woe is me.
