I’m Shamus Young, a 45 year old writer and software engineer and an enthusiastically married father of 3. In my free time I tend to play videogames and write software of dubious value. I also tend to write about these things here. If you want to buy my books, look here.
If you’d like to contact me my email is: shamus -at- shamusyoung dot com
If you’re looking for a bunch of personal info, here’s the short version:
I’m a Christian, but an nontraditional one who is happy to live harmoniously with other people without forcing my values on them. I keep my politics to myself, because I’d rather have friends than “win” arguments. I don’t have a degree.
If you want the long version, then you can find more than you ever wanted to know here:
- The Autoblography – The story of growing up and trying to become a programmer before such a thing was properly invented. (1971 – 1998)
- Crash Dot Com – My rags-to-riches-to-rags journey through the Dot-com bubble. (1998 – 2001)
- The Twelve Year Mistake – A blunder that took over a decade to figure out. (2000 – 2013)
- Something in the Water – A dumb story of dumb things that happened. (2014)
