Hi! I'm [@ftlsid](https://twitter.com/ftlsid). This website contains my notes on the many intricacies of our world. I also write a blog called [cybermonk](https://cybermonk.substack.com), and save miscellany to [are.na](https://www.are.na/ftlsid/channels). Projects - writing [a condensed Japanese grammar textbook](https://jp.ftlsid.com) - I learned Japanese quite fast and I think you can too - attempt to build [[Artificial general intelligence|artificial intelligence]] by studying the computational and physical underpinnings of biological evolution Other things I spend my time on - meditation - probably the single most important habit I've picked up, ever - climbing - working as an engineer ([[Hire me]]!)
