I'm Nat Bennett, and this is my website.

Briefly: Software engineer, writer, worked at Pivotal, worked on Cloud Foundry, *nix knower, functional programmer, loves process but hates dogma, photographer, katamari-damacy ball of hobbies, people-loving introvert, Havanese caretaker, James C. Scott anarchist, seeker after "the quality without a name," Californian, lived in New York City for a year and will never let you forget it, Coast Guard brat.

Want to work with me? We should talk.

I have many newsletters, but I currently have two "main" newsletters. You can sign up for both of them here.

  • Simpler Machines – software + making meaning
  • Mere Being writing + art
  • You can also sign up for Good Rectangles, which will be a photography newsletter once it gets off the ground.
