I'm co-founder of ReadyForZero.com, a YCombinator and 500 Startups company that is changing the lives of Americans outside Silicon Valley.
I studied computer science at Carnegie Mellon and wrote a master's thesis on heuristic search at UCLA. I've worked on statistical machine translation at USC [some publications are here] and Google.
These are pretty random thoughts, but I usually write about Clojure programming, life at a startup, and simplicity in software development.
