What is here… Anything that’s not directly work related that I think would be useful or interesting to people on the Internet. Mostly book and product reviews, personal experiences, and problems I’ve solved that you can’t find the solution anywhere else. Occasionally a bit of writing, response, or under-appreciated links.
What isn’t here… Random opinion, family life, minutiae, facts you can easily find with a quick Google Search.
Why this is here… because I think everyone should have a personal website…not just a social profile run by some giant corporation making money off your life moments and connections.
Who this is… I’m the Nate Shivar of Atlanta, GA. It’s not a common name…if you Google it, then you pretty much get all my profiles. Here’s all about me professionally and personally…
