My name is Aranjedeath (aˈɾaŋ.xadɛθ). I'm a techie, but I have an associates in International Studies from Cuesta College, and a bachelors in Global Studies from CSU Monterey Bay. My concentration at CSUMB was in International Aid & Development, using complexity theory to analyze current and historic development (like international aid, not like code or products) regimes. The best papers I wrote for each class are available in my graduation portfolio.
I wrote my capstone paper on the future of technology, focusing on compounding advances in storage, communications, and sensor technologies, blockchains, and software capable of producing cognizant objects. I took this combination as the real promise (and peril) of the Internet of Things, and sought to begin a coversation on what it will mean for humans (ontological, not epistemic or metaphysic).
I currently do IT for a software engineering firm, meaning I: substantially perform the department's day-to-day operations. I am a Lead FileMaker Engineer (ranked between Associate and Senior). I am paid to write code in Python, Powershell, FileMaker Script, PHP, and HTML/CSS. I do IT Services coaching: Meaning I teach other IT people how to manage their business' mission critical assets.
I maintain a news feed for those who wish to be more informed about world events, but who do not or can not spend time seeking their own information. It is a Twitter list, and works whether or not you have an account. Please use it, and give it to any and all, most especially your enemies.
Against better judgement, I also tweet.
My current web experiments directory is here (kinda stale).
