About Me

I’m an engineer, and I work in network research in the Boston area. In addition to this blog, I have been making projects for the Internet since 1998.

  • GalaxyFarAway.com: In 1998, I created GalaxyFarAway.com, a web site about Star Wars. It is by far the most popular thing I have ever created on the Internet.
  • Science Addiction: From 2005 to 2010, I used to write a blog called Science Addiction about tech/geek/wonk stuff, but it’s now dormant. It also hosted my various code projects. In the good ol’ days, that blog got Slashdot’ed, Digg front-paged, BoingBoing’ed… and even got a mention in the print version of Wired. So that was cool.
  • Cricket: I also used to blog about the sport of cricket (and its statistics) at Deep Backward Point. It was quite popular for a brief internet moment, and was featured on ESPN Cricinfo a couple of time. I was also the founder/editor of two other (mostly dormant) cricket web sites: The Sight Screen, which is a fan-driven cricket magazine and The Teesra (now defunct), which was like The Onion for cricket.
  • Apple: I used to write a weekly column for Apple Matters between 2005 and 2007. Around that time, I also wrote a few chapters of Chris Seibold’s excellent O’Reilly Media book Big Book of Apple Hacks, available here.
  • Film: Some years ago I created a short documentary series on western influences on Bollywood music. My writing on film has been featured on IGN and Brattle Film.
  • Code: I had a now-defunct open source project called getFlix, which helped people download and analyze their Netflix movie ratings. Back in college I created a natural language movie recommendation system.
  • And obviously, my this is my personal blog.

I put fun and interesting things I find on tumblr. I’m rarely on Twitter these days as myself, or as my cricket-writing alter-ego.
