Hi! I’m Alison Blomenberg.

I’m a software engineer that wrangles technology for nonprofits so they can focus on humans. I grew up in the Middle East and currently live in the United States, and when I’m not knee-deep in JavaScript I like to read and write speculative fiction. Probably the best introduction to what I do and how I try to do it is my essay on merciful software engineering.

I blogged here extensively from 2010-2016, producing many interesting artifacts of my childhood interests and a lot of questionable jokes. A few old posts that still draw enough web traffic to potentially be useful to human civilization remain available in the Archives. If you’re here looking for another old Sheesania post, contact me and I would (probably) be happy to share.
