My name is Narayan Nayar. I’ve been hurling electrons at the masses for almost 30 years, starting with BBS systems and dialup in the mid-80s, so by all means step aside and let a pro like me handle this whole posting-on-the-Internet thing (which I swear will become popular someday). My former site, etherfarm, is being retooled as a site and company for my creative endeavors; in March 2018 I began using nryn.com as my general-purpose blog, documenting my varied and ultimately futile endeavors.
I’m a formerly-thirty-something year old residing just outside Chicago in a village named Oak Park with my wife, my son and daughter, a few dogs, and probably a stowaway millipede or two. I grew up in the (very) rural suburbs of Chicago, moved to the city for a wee bit of college (but really just to ride the El), then in a fit of madness moved to Maine to flyfish then to California to… I don’t remember. In any case, I was gone for 15 years and missed Chicago and the Midwest for about 16 of those. I’ve been back for a while now and couldn’t be happier.
During the day (and often most nights), I run a product design team for a very large software company, but I rarely blog about work. My interests include photography, woodworking, travel, flyfishing, bicycling, architecture and all-things-food. Occasionally I do some work for and with my good friends at Lost Art Press. And I’m usually wearing a hat.
