about: this journal

This is the personal journal by me, hakusaro, about a variety of topics and subjects.

Particle 17 is heterogeneous. My areas of interest are fairly diverse: fiction writing and storytelling, programming, working, and living a quantified life.

I created Particle 17 because of a general frustration with online platforms. I find traditional blogs to be cumbersome and hard to discover. But right now social media isn't my thing, and it doesn't particularly like long-form writing anyway. So we're here.

My goal with Particle 17 is to create a venue where I can discuss anything I want and share it. That's all. It is my hope to create a varied journal.

Some might call it a blog (and it is very much likely to be that), but since I dislike the word, I'm calling it a journal instead.
