The Digerati Life

I have christened this place The Digerati Life, given that I intend to write about money, technology, my entrepreneurial endeavors and what the culture is like where I work and live. Here you’ll find a mish-mash of these subjects that interest me and what I have something to say about. This site will hopefully be enlightening and educational in the topics of personal finance (heavier weighting on this), self development, and business and entrepreneurship, while perhaps being entertaining as well. I’ll be adding commentary on how engineers work and play in the Valley. And of course, it will cover whatever strikes me about the Internet. Admittedly, I also have a little bit of a taste for macabre news stories so if it fits the theme here, I’ll be talking about it. Not very many engineers write, or have the desire to, although quite a disproportionate number of financial bloggers are indeed engineers! But most programmers I know personally like playing with gadgets and games and working 14 hour days subject to surges of creativity and caffeine. I figured I would be one of those who would “represent”.
