Aleph

Hello World! Isn’t this the first “homework” when learning how to code? A new site (aleph.gr) on a new platform (WordPress) for me to document parts of my geeky life.

Why Aleph? As described by William Gibson on his “Mona Lisa Overdrive” novel, aleph is a huge capacity device which can virtually house a whole internet. Quoting from William Gibson’s Aleph site :

First letter of the Hebrew alphabet; huge biochip with immensely big storage capacity. Inspired by the short story ‘The Aleph’ (1945) by Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges. In the story, the Aleph is described to be ‘one of the points in space that contains all other points’.

Who am I? I’m a proud geek husband and father, currently living in Athens, Greece. A Telecommunications Engineer for Cyta Hellas, a Linux and Android enthusiast, who loves Sci-Fi and Fantasy literature and TV.

The reason I decided to restart blogging is my need to document my Linux ventures, mostly for future references, as well as other aspects of my life, especially the geeky ones (novel and TV series reviews, technology news and personal thoughts on all thing digital).

Stay tuned!
