Hey, I'm Nik Markwell.

You may know me as "duck" or "duckinator."

I am an artist. My media are words, pictures, and code.

I can write in many languages, but most of them are to talk to computers.

I solve problems that bother me, and I create strange things to do so.

I create operating systems for amusement.

I brought a feature from Python to Ruby, for the same reason.

Sandboxes are fascinating.

I got the ball rolling for Gittip's JavaScript widget.

I enjoy working on compilers.
