Hello World

Obligatory, awkward first blog post incoming. This is the part where I talk about what I want this blog to be about.

I grew up believing that most people won't give you the time of day. That the average person doesn't really care about what you have to say, and that you should go through life minding your own business and letting other people mind theirs. When I was really young I had a belief that, if you were smart enough, and worked hard enough, you could do anything all on your own.

You can spend your life building skyscrapers alone. There are folks out there, Terry Davis comes to mind, may he rest in peace, who've done exactly that- built skyscrapers alone.

As I've grown up, I've come to realize that I can spend my whole life building one skyscraper alone, or I can get over my social anxiety, make friends who give a shit about the same things I do, and build a whole bunch of skyscrapers. And people will probably actually use them, people other than me.

So, that's what this blog's about. It's about popping the bubble I've put myself in, and having conversations with other people who care. It's about sharing ideas and techniques, technologies and interests, discoveries and data.

Hello, World. My name is Dylan Culfogienis, and I give a shit about a bunch of things. Keep reading, and maybe we'll give a shit about the same things together. Who knows, maybe you'll even find new things to give a shit about.
