Cryptography has existed, in one form or another, for most of recorded history. We can see examples of such practices that stretch in complexity from very simple substitution ciphers to the fairly complex electromechanical machines that were used just before the invention of the first modern computing systems. Although such primitive cryptographic methods would not stand up under modern methods of cryptographic attacks, they still form the basis for our modern algorithms.” [ J. Andress, The Basics of Information Security, 2014 ]

“Simpatico” – (of a person) – Having a compatible temperament or pleasing qualities. quotations  From simpatia (“sympathy”)ultimately from Ancient Greek σῠμπᾰ́θειᾰ (sumpátheia, “sympathy”, literally “suffering together”)

Learning To Code

I initially built simpatico crypto on the extremely limiting and rather disingenuous wordpress dot com platform [you have to start somewhere] and completed the migration to my own hosted space at SiteGround in mid 2020.

The site serves as a portfolio and a space to experiment & blog.

New Podcast and Website

I’ve recently launched ‘Cardano Foundry – a website and intermittent podcast.

Seems to me that you’re not really interested in one code language unless you’re interested in them all.

Knowing truth is compelling. Art is nothing without craft. And craft is nothing without the slow grind of practice.
