Hello world!

I know that is the default title for a WordPress first post, but it oddly enough fits the theme of the site, so I’ll go with it.

I suppose a theme statement for this blog is in order, so I’ll just start with something short.  I’m a Computer Scientist by way of college, but a Software Engineer by trade.  I like to say that “Everything relates to Computer Science”, but really computer science can be applied to just about everything in life to try to make the world better.  CS has so many broad topics – security, logic, distributed systems, human/computer interaction, design, just to name a few.  And topics in CS can be traced back to a real world problem that someone wanted to solve or make simpler or faster.
