Shrutarshi Basu


I am a programmer, writer and graduate student.

Working out of Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.

Things I Do

By day I work on programmable networks, in particular, building the next generation of languages to program them. By night I write a variety of open source software. Recently I've been teaching myself web programming and cultivating an interest in user interfaces and design.

I write a popular and growing technology blog called The ByteBaker. Previously I wrote for the Lafayette Voices. Someday I plan on writing a book. I probably spend a bit too much time on Twitter.

A few words on Philosophy

Technology is a medium, a tool for expression. Technology is not just an engineering discipline, not just a science, not an arcane approximation to magic.

Technology surrounds us. Technology improves us. Technology becomes us.

We are part of a technological (r)evolution. We always have been. I'm just trying to make sense of it. Join me.
