Thanks for visiting my blog! My name is Micah Elliott, and I live in Portland, Oregon, USA. I’m an entrepreneur and founder of Membean: an online vocabulary training program used by schools in all 50 states and around the globe. I spend much of my time there coding and managing infrastructure. You should sign up for a free Membean account; let me know how it goes!
My goal for this blog is to share technical knowledge and discoveries in hopes that we can all continue learning. There is a focus on infrastructure, Linux, programming, and teaching.
(You’ll find a some unfinished work on this “blog”. Some sections are a dumping ground. When something comes to mind I’ll sketch it out here in public. There is no real notion of “publish” — that becomes too formal and I end up sitting on things. So I write, save, and push frequently. Sorry.)
View the projects I work on.

This blog comprises a mix of my favorite tech (which I also like to write about). It’s hosted on FreeBSD 10.1 by a DigitalOcean droplet running Nginx, and is deployed via Ansible. The blog engine is Cryogen, written in Clojure, and it is nice to look at because it mostly came that way (including Bootstrap). Posts are written in Asciidoc with Emacs. Changes are managed and shared on Github. Read my recipe on how to set it up if you want one, too.
