Hi I'm Myk Bilokonsky and welcome to my home on the internet. This is a work in progress.
(My home in meatspace is in New York City, where I live with
my partner and make my living as a software engineer. It is, I suppose, also a work in progress!)
Socially, you can find me on
the bird site, or on
my mastodon instance. I do have a facebook account but I generally only friend folks I know in person. If we've
met feel free to find me there.
Professionally, I take pride in the lessons I've published on
Egghead.io, and a few of the projects littering up my
github profile. If you'd like to work with me, I've got a
resume and a general-purpose
- Identity is weird, right? "I seem to be a verb" and all that, but also, like, my behavior on a given day is as much
a function of the state of my gut biome as it is anything else. My gut bacteria make decisions for me; my culture
makes decisions for me; why do we privilege a specific point along what seems to be a spectrum?
- "Reality Tunnels" are a crazy powerful ontological tool. I will eventually insist that you read Robert Anton Wilson's
essay about them,
Creative Agnosticism, so you might as well just get it over with now. It means so much to me it's the only
external work I'm linking here. (I'm working on
my own essays about them, too, but RAW is canon here.)
- I'm on the autism spectrum (though I'm generally neurotypical-passing unless you know me well), I have a history
of struggling with depression and anxiety and I have spent a disproportionate amount of time thinking about mental
written about it, too.
