I'm honestly quite stressed and worried about the remainder of… Continue reading no mourners, no funerals
Unsong book covers!
Hello friends! A few months ago I discovered a delightfully nerdy and complex book called Unsong, which you can read for free online here.

Hello, friends. I hope some of you are still here -- this blog has been sadly neglected lately.
