Hi, I'm Nathan. I started this blog in December 2010 as a Tumblr site. You can find those old posts on Tumblr. The modern version of The Moment started in October 2011 and initially started as a tutorial-focused site. Today, The Moment focuses on opinions and links to things that I find interesting.
More About Me
I'm a college junior studying Computer Science at the George Washington University in Washington, DC. I've been
breaking using computers since I was about three, and programming since middle school.
I'm also the web developer at The GW Hatchet, our independent, student-run newspaper. At The Hatchet, I've redesigned the website and launched a mobile app to provide our readers with the best access to our content.
I encourage you to a look at some of my programming projects on the my portfolio.
When I'm not coding, you may also find me writing science fiction novels. I've completed National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) three times now, and I'm planning on doing it again in the future. Nothing that I've written has really made it quite to publishing quality yet, but I'm really proud of
doing surviving NaNoWriMo.
Miscellaneous opinions that may offer some insight about me:
- It's pronounced GIF, soft-g, like the peanut butter.
- Tabs, not spaces (but it really doesn't matter in the end).
And that's about it. Feel free to get in touch me with via the Contact link above.
About This Site
This site runs on custom software called Simple Blog Server, or SBS. SBS is based on Node.js and Nginx. This site is hosted on Linode. I've considered published SBS on GitHub, but I don't think it's really ready for anyone else to use, and I might even switch away from it someday.
