Rich Gibbs is a software guy with a background in quantitative finance, applied math, and physical chemistry. He currently lives and works in Northern Virginia, outside Washington DC, but has made stops along the way in Chicago, Boston, New York, San Francisco, Frankfurt-am-Main, and London (not in that order). His interests include:
- Software development, particularly open source
- Systems security
- Reading, words, and language (a bit of German, Latin, and French)
- Food and cooking
- Music (mostly classical)
- Cycling (mostly road)
- Math and statistics
However, as the title suggests, he is likely to touch on a wide variety of topics here.
Rich’s aim in writing here is to point out and talk about things that he finds interesting, funny, thought-provoking, or just a little weird. It is no part of his intention to become involved in political wrangling, since he thinks that particular blog market segment already has a surfeit of alternatives.
