I've been in and around tech since the early 1980s thanks to Input magazine and a BBC B. I'm not a language zealot and love learning new languages or about new problems to solve.
I took a detour through Theoretical Physics and am currently working towards a Master's in Philosophy.
I'm a Software Eng Manager at a well-known tech company as a day job, I maintain Google Benchmark, and I create and fail to finish too many software projects.
nice to meet you all!
Everyone wants to look at the technology, but I suspect the biggest problems arise from the processes we use.

sometimes, you hack some random idea together one weekend and then forget about it. and then you're chatting in discord and remember you built something similar to what someone says they want. and then someone takes a look and says "that's nifty", and it inspires you to go back and make it into a thing.
only you can't remember how it worked or what your plans were.
If we want more and better innovation, we need to create structures and systems that are truly equitable and diverse. That means socioeconomic, ND, trauma and more. To have innovation we need to support innovators. 3/
