Aleksey Kliger's whims of fancy

I'm a professional compilers and languages geek. It is something I have been interested in since grad school. I like type theory and logic.

I've been a computer geek from a pretty young age.

However there are other things that, I enjoy. I also consume of several cultural industries: both artful and trashy cinema, various genres of popular music, and literature of questionable merit.

Although I'd be content with just theoretical computing, I do actually use real live computers. In addition to some modest contributions, I am interested in free software, especially if it is available as a Debian package.
