About Me and This Blog

Posted on Mar 6, 2022

Welcome to my blog! I’m Ariadna Vigo (aka Ari), your lovely, classy host on this website! On this blog you will find articles mostly on Free and Open Source, programming (especially in C and POSIX shell, which are the languages I’m more proficient in), thoughts on tech trends, as well as some occasional cultural and social commentary… and maybe some Bible readings, because why not?

I hope you find my posts engaging, interesting, different (that’s for sure…), and thought-provoking! If you wanna comment on any of my writings, please send me a message! You’ll find ways to contact me at the Find Ari page! I’ll be looking forward to any thoughts you may wanna share with me!

Also, you might be interested in having a look at my FOSS projects!

I wanna dedicate this website to my late grandad Niccolò; he was super handsome, a true Italian dandy; I don’t remember him as well as I wished, but most of my memories I have of him are those in which he showed me his old ZX Spectrum. He was an Electrical Engineer in Argentina and had bought it way back in the 80s when almost nobody was paying attention to computers in the country. I think he even wrote about the machine on some local magazines, if I recall correctly.

I think I was 8 or 9 years old back then, not sure? After he passed away, some years later I dug up the machine from a closet at my granma’s and that was my first conscious contact with programming… in good ol’ Sinclair BASIC of course! Yeah, I’d had some previous computer experience (I was a very lucky kid, to be honest), but when it comes to coding it was me trying to relive those moments with my grandad using his old machine… From there my interest only grew increasingly… and here I am with you, my readers.

And, by the way, this is me:

Ari

God bless you all! 💕
