Hi, I'm Alex.

Who... are you?

I'm just some guy from Sydney. Well, I've just graduated from UNSW, where I taught some classes, drunk a good amount of beer, and started the B-Grade Society. If you'd like to give me a job, please, shoot me an email — because reasons.

I'll chat to you about computer science, music (I don't know if what I've got classifies as "home studio", but definitely some gear sprawled on a desk), art, the humourous state of Australian politics, and everything in between.

I am weird twitter.

Data retention strategy paper

Strategy paper — originally written while at university — detailing options surrounding the then-unreleased data retention proposal. It is written with a legislative context in mind.

The Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Amendment (Data Retention) Bill 2014, introduced to the House by the 2013 Liberal/National coalition government, received assent on 13 April 2015.

Papaya

Operating system written from scratch. Uses the seL4 microkernel.

wave tableau

Converts images to sound, and vice versa. Output live video to your headphones, and record live audio back as a moving image.

Originally part of an art project, where visitors could hear the live video they were seeing, modify it using a vintage Roland Space Echo tape delay, and feed it back and see their modifications warp the video in real time.

Imagine You And Me

A writing project by Tina and Sarah. I designed and put together the website together at the very last minute. So, not strictly all my work, but I think it's really cute and it deserves to be here.

Booty

Bootkit for Windows 7+

analogout

Some songs I like. A "music blog" if it were.

Bus, Please Come

Find out in real-time when the bus is coming to your stop. A web-based replacement for the TXTBUS service, with a few extra nice things.
