Hi. I’m Patrick.

I’m fascinated by the mystery of life and the universe in which we live. I enjoy creating things (like software) and discovering how they work.

My mission is ambitious, but simple: I want to help build tools that will improve the quality of life for people everywhere, and enable humanity to become a thriving, inter-planetary species.

This website is a running log of interesting discoveries made along the way, and the home of many of my personal projects. It currently contains five major sections:

  • Life: On life, love, happiness, and everything in-between.
  • Space: On our place in a universe containing more stars than there are grains of sand on all the beaches of Earth.
  • Software: On programming languages and software engineering.
  • Security: On information security, cryptography engineering, cyber-warfare and politics, and the risks associated with an increasingly connected world.
  • Everything else: On anything that doesn’t fit into any of the above.

Subscription feeds are available for each section.

For more about me, read the about page from a life, space, software, or security (professional bio) perspective.
