About

The blog title is from Flusser. I’m just doing my part.

I attended the Gallatin School within NYU, where I studied computer science, mathematics, and media theory.

After graduating, I had the privilege¬†of teaching math at The Island School, a semester program on Eleuthera, one of the Out Islands of The Bahamas. In my second year there, we started developing and teaching a course that guided students through the derivation of celestial navigation directly from observation and first principles. An unobstructed horizon, limited light pollution, and unreliable, $.10/MB(!) satellite internet access allowed us to tackle geometric and geographic questions answered 2300 years ago with no fear of Wikipedia spoiling things. Math pedagogy and helping to instill a love of the subject are both very near to my heart; bring them up at brevity’s peril.

I’m now at Google¬†on the Maps API team doing Developer Relations.

I like solving hard problems. I like making new things. I love the open web.

My attempts to rise out of internet anonymity have largely been stymied by the ridiculous preponderance of other Brendan Kennys. If you’re looking, though:
