Okay. I should do an post.

I'm jackyalciné. I work with software a lot. I run often. I cook. I also track a lot of my life digitally. I have more information at

I give talks in tech + social justice + Black history (and intersections thereof). I'm from New York, chilling out West now.

I have a habit for breaking things and putting them back together with a test harness. I'm open to banter but only if it's peaceful and for growth.
