Welcome to the personal blog of Chris Hiestand. I'm a problem solver which means I attempt to solve problems but often make them worse. Occasionally I make things better. I identify as programmer, skeptic, rationalist, progressive. These words may not mean the same thing to you as they do to me. And INTJ and Pisces if you think those mean anything.

With this blog I attempt to communicate solutions that matter to me, especially vis-à-vis technology, politics, religion, etc.

These words are my own and do not represent the views of my employer(s), friend(s), spouse(s), flying-spaghetti-parent(s), hairdresser(s) or even necessarily my future self, but maybe Kartik's.
