Lost in 日本-country! Programmer, professional paranoid, clever playfulness enthusiast (computers and beyond!). An engineer by training, quietly morphing into a theoretician.1

↪ To see how to get in touch with me, read this.

For further information, please see my Curriculum Vitæ. There is also a GitHub account, but other attempts to find me on so-called “social media” are futile.2 And since we are on that subject…

Businesses that make money by collecting and selling detailed records of private lives were once plainly described as “surveillance companies.” Their rebranding as “social media” is the most successful deception since the Department of War became the Department of Defense. —Edward Snowden3

About these pages…

(If you are wandering about the name “erroneous thoughts”, go here.) I like to write, and plus it usually helps (a lot!) to clarify one’s thoughts. And in addition to helping one “taste life twice” (cf. the quote in the blog page), writing is a also a great way to vent one’s complaints! For this reason, you might find some ideas expressed here that will definitely run against the bien-pensant status quo. Should you find they stir your thoughts and/or imagination, you’re welcome!4

  1. Professional paranoia: see here. “Clever playfulness” was one way to describe the original—rather than the posterior, “Hollywood-esque”—meaning of the word “hacker”. See here and here for details. It also applies beyond computers; e.g. in the words of Schneier, «Richard Feynman was a hacker; read any of his books.»

  2. But if you really want more, well, here’s some more stuff.

  3. Twitter link. The irony of saying such a thing on Twitter is not lost on me; but that does not diminish its truth.

  4. If, on the other hand, you get offended and/or teeming with indignation after reading something I wrote, then… I’m sorry. It likely was not done on purpose, but sometimes such an outcome is inevitable.
