I'm passionate about programming, and some of my work can be found on GitHub. I use Emacs as my editor-for-everything, and blog about it from time to time.
I love talking about technology. If you're talking about distributed systems, programming languages, performance, data structures, Emacs, Git, do call me over!
I love reading books, and I write book reviews once in a while. I also have strong personal opinions on mythology and culture, and I use this space to try and convert random strangers to my point of view.
If you want to get in touch, please send me a message at vedang.manerikar on Google's email service.
