Welcome to my blog

Welcome to my blog

Welcome to my personal blog. I am Alex and I am a computer programmer. I love being creative; I see creativity as a game that is always capable to offer me the same joy and excitement as when I was a kid. Computer programming has proved to be the main object of my creative spirit as it offers a very diverse area of playgrounds my inner child wants to play with.

I started making computer programs to build a game me and a friend designed. I was 12 years old and the year was 1988. I never finished that game but since then I created thousands of programs. I don't even know how many of them were programs for my personal pleasure or for work. I generally like the projects I develop professionally so some of them feel more like games and less like work.

Over the years I realized I enjoy teaching fellow programmers what I know about our field. I am going to do a lot of that in this blog and I also intend to show off a bit to help my professional life. I have also found myself feeling small when I don't take a stance on issues I could contribute and I stay silent instead. So I intend to use this blog to talk about other issues beyond computers.

Until now the most interesting project I have been obsessed with has to do with AI. It found me when I was 18, and I am still working on it. Over the last few years AI has become a popular subject so now I feel more comfortable to talk about it. I am intrigued by the many different angles of AI. As a computer programmer someone would expect me to have strict technocratic views but the truth is I always find myself wondering about other effects of AI in social life, economy, politics etc.

If you are a person who enjoys web, mobile, desktop, you-name-it programming you are in a good place. If you like reading about views that reach out to other areas such as social, political, psychological or other fields, you are in the right place.

Enjoy my blog and feel free to weight in, especially if your argument has something new to contribute.
