Now: October 2016

What am I focused on right now?

  • Reading/Editing Henry James Korn’s next book
  • Reading/Editing a new children’s book
  • Continuing work with Community
    • Experimenting with some front-end development
    • Hosting meetups for the Homebrew Website Club
    • Prep for IndieWebCamp in Santa Monica in November which I’m now organizing
  • Taking Complex Analysis through the Autumn at UCLA
  • Building a few websites/author platforms/social media hubs for some friends/clients.


I’m way behind on this year’s reading, in part because I’ve been reading more magazine and online material, but I’m actively working on some of the following:

  • Fletch’s Moxie by Gregory Mcdonald – finished 10/10/16
  • Complex Analysis with Applications by Richard A. Silverman
  • Principles of Mathematical Analysis, Third Edition by Walter Rudin
  • Dealing with China by Henry M. Paulson, Jr.
  • A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond – finished 10/31/16
