Hi, I'm Matt

I was released to the public in 1991, a few months after the Web. This is my personal website which I primarily use as a blog. You can read more about me on the About page, see what I’m up to now via the Now page, and see how to get in touch via the Contact Page. There’s also some meta information about the site itself on the Site Notes page.
