Hello, World

This is the introductory, statement of purpose post for 'Steve's House Of Logic'. I am your host, Steve. I have been working in and around software development for 14 years, and I have been blogging for 7 years or so. The problem with my old blog is that it was unfocused, ranging from posts about Python to CD reviews to commentary on amusing cat videos on youTube and even occasional forays into the gutter that is political blogging. I realized I needed a blog that focused on the tech side of my existence, and this is it.

My tech interests include but are not limited to these topics, all of which I hope to get to in time. A goal of this blog is to post with relative frequency, but to try to avoid content free fluff posts and mindless link propagation.

  • All things Python
  • Google App Engine and 'Cloud' technologies
  • Databases, relational as well as new technologies (BigTable, Column-oriented databases)
  • Robotics
  • The Arduino Platform
  • The Processing Language/Platform
  • The 9-million APIs of the Internet and Mashups
  • The 'Semantic Web' (RDF, SPARQL, and so on)
  • Freebase (the product from Metaweb, not the drug) and their Acre environment
  • Functional Programming
  • Prolog
Upfront disclosure as to my biases, to save both myself and readers time:

Microsoft: Nay
Open Source: Yay
Mac: Yay
Videoblogging/The proliferation of instructional videos: Eh.
vi: Eh.
Emacs: Yay
