Back in the day, the internet used to be a decentralized system where websites linked to and from each other. Nowadays, the internet is very different – it’s a highly centralized system of silos owned by a handful of huge corporations. Still, the decentralized internet (and no, I am not talking about any of that “web 3.0” blockchain bollocks) is a beautiful idea, so here are some hyperlinks to people – mostly early career scientists – whose work I find interesting:
- Paul Gessinger: colleague and co-author, brilliant physicist and photographer
- Uma Zalakain: consistently interesting content on programming languages and type theory, among other topics
I will never claim to be a competent photographer, but it is something that I am interested in, and something that I enjoy learning more about. I own a Nikon D3500 camera, with a NIKKOR 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6 kit lens, a NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5–6.3 lens, a NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8 lens, a Sigma 24mm f/1.4 lens, and an Irix 15mm f/2.4 lens. I also own some vintage Soviet lenses.
My pictures are compositionally and technically simple, but that’s okay. I also really like birds!
