A dream of reason discussions about this, that, and the other

James Tranovich

About me

I am an entrepreneur based in Berkeley, currently engaged with my third start-up as Chief Product Officer. I have been deaf since the age of one, due to spinal meningitis.

I enjoy rock climbing, reading Roman socio-political history and contemporary philosophy, and hacking on functional programming projects.

I agree with Emerson when he says that "Every novel is a debtor to Homer." I consider the late David Foster Wallace to be the novelist par excellence of our era. I adore historians such as Ronald Syme and E. H. Carr.

I regularly host hackathons for disabled professional programmers. We welcome anyone, and if you want to join, just drop me a line.

A dream of reason is an allusion to the nature of both programming and philosophy.
