A brief catalog of things I learned for fun that later made me money

I’m thankful for… things that I learned ‘just cuz’, which later netted me some profit in my work life.

  • what drivers are and how they interact
  • how to build a PC from parts
  • how to install, administer, and run Linux
  • typing
  • 3D graphics/modelling/simulation
  • what’s underneath the covers of the Internet and Web
  • calculus
  • how to build an Ethernet network
  • x86 assembly language
  • Python
  • a number of other programming languages
  • computer audio

The list goes on… Most of my career has been a series of happy accidents combined with a general wish to align my interests and my work. That’s nice.
