I’m a rando named Ed Dean (not the redhead), who lives in Pittsburgh, PA, with a talented and charming lady named Emily (yes the redhead). I’ve worn a number of different hats in my day—logician, data scientist, actuary—largely because I seem to tire of every hat eventually. I am sporadically a semi-serious (though decidedly amateur) chess player, and I used to waste unseemly amounts of time on things like the guitar and pool. Now my free time is mostly travel and cracking wise.
This site served a purpose for me in the past, but has little reason to exist at the moment. It persists nonetheless, mostly on its own inertia.
