Hi 👋🏻, I’m Steve. I built note.garden to help me connect concepts and ideas on the things I’m interested in, mainly programming, philosophy, and systems thinking, especially related to how to behave ethically within unethical systems. When parenting leaves me time, I’m enjoying learning to play the tin whistle. This is the temple of my adult aloneness.
