My name is Brian Schrader. I'm an independent software developer living in San Diego, CA. This site is my little home on the internet where I go on (and on) about things that are important to me.

I own and run SkyRocket Software, my indie software company, where I make things some people like. I'm also a co-founder of Adventurer's Codex, a tool for enhancing and tracking D&D games. And I'm the lead singer, song-writer, and

Followed The United States of Anxiety by Kai WrightKai Wright (WNYC Studios)
A show about the unfinished business of our history and its grip on our future.
So, I’ve been sitting around pining away for new episodes of The Stakes without realizing until today that Kai Wright has seasons of other great stuff hiding away right next door.
Followed Dan MacKinlay (danmackinlay.name)

Hi, I’m Dan MacKinlay.

I’m a statistician and musician from Australia. Musician should be clear. Statistician, though, what’s that? A statistician is the exact same thing as a data scientist or machine learning researcher with the differences that there are qualifications needed to be a statistician, and that we are snarkier.

These days I work across data analysis, music, generative design and machine learning, especially for time series. I’ve been based at various times at such locations as

Currently I am doing a PhD in statistics with Zdravko Botev at the University of New South Wales Sydney.

My current methods of interest are point process inference, compressive sensing, design grammars, sequential Monte Carlo methods, concatenative synthesis, differentiable learning, branching processes, Hilbert-space methods in high dimensional inference, stochastic differential equations and the application of all of these to economic modelling, reliability engineering and sick breakbeats.

Followed Henrique Dias (hacdias.com)

I'm a B.Sc. student in Information Systems and Computer Engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico, in Lisbon. Currently working at Protocol Labs on decentralizing the web.

I believe in the transparency and openness of the web and when creating software so you can probably say I'm an Open Source advocate. You can check out my GitHub profile if you want to know more about what I'm doing right now.

Aram Zucker-Scharff is out to find a better narrative for the world. Over the past few years he has built himself an understanding of new media, marketing and advertising from the ground up. By starting in the midst of the radical alteration of how we consume media, it has become clear that new media requires new methods of understanding.

Aram firmly believes that you have to comprehend the spectrum of knowledge that supports professional techniques in order to create effective and unique innovation. This means knowing the basic elements of how to tell a brand's story as well as understanding the code and hardware behind the digital systems we use every day.

His approach is to understand where technology and narrative meet. Then we can work together to find the best way to apply that knowledge to strengthen the brand.

Followed L.T. Hanlon (lthanlon.com)

I’m L.T. Hanlon, a writer and photographer now living in Chicago. Before moving to the Windy City, I worked at newspapers in Arizona, Colorado, and Wyoming. These days, I’m branching out into independent publishing — including writing genre fiction for Amazon’s Kindle platform under several pseudonyms. In addition to publishing, I’m interested in stereoscopic photography, widescreen motion picture technology, midcentury modern architecture, typewriters, UFOs, and Fortean phenomena.

Followed News Co/Lab (newscollab.org)
The News Co/Lab works to advance media literacy through journalism, education and technology. We’re based at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
We experiment with new ways to increase public understanding of how news works. Rather than duplicate existing projects, we promote them and seek to expand their efforts. We collaborate with many partners.

Followed Kevin (aka @kordumb) (tiv.today)
Welcome to The Independent Variable, a digital publication for news that doesn’t matter written by me, mynameiskev.in (I may or may not matter). I also have a propensity for completenonsen.se (but that’s just between you and me). I call this here thing a digital publication, but in all honesty, you‘ll just find things like link and video posts from across the interwebs along with the occasional list (who doesn’t love to hate lists?) and maybe even an article or two. All posts are tagged according to the icon key in case you ever get confused, lost, or completely fed up with me.
