I’m a Mechanical Engineer at the University of Utah. In the desert, I take lots of photographs and think about lots of things, and wanted a place to put it all. Also, I can play with HTML and web design, useful tools for the 21st century.
Additionally, sometimes a website looks good on a resume or job application, so parts will be more of a portfolio. Perhaps pessimistic interpretations of the URL will be off putting to some, I am unconcerned. Those familiar with success understand failure is part of the victory. NASA blew up dozens of rockets, Space X has done the same. Apple Maps was a catastrophic failure. Sometimes, if we allow, failure teaches us more than success.
