- vcsh and mr: dotfiles nirvana.
- vim: cause every other editor feels half baked.
- zsh: Instantly Awesome ZSH using Prezto.

- anki: powerful, intelligent flashcards.
- beets: the music geek’s media organizer.

I’ve only recently started tracking the books on goodreads which I’ve read or I intend to read; and through this endeavour, I’ve come to the arguably depressing conclusion that I don’t read as much I’d like to. I’ve decided not to burden myself with realization and find solace in the fact that I consume a lot of blogs daily.
I read RSS on Digg (for-it-matters-which-RSS-reader-you-use).
I’m trying to do my bit in organizing the vast expanses of the internet using hypothes.is. You can access my annotation stream here. It contains all articles that I found to be interesting.
