I am available for coffee. I will meet anyone in/around downtown Boston to talk about nearly anything. I’m particularly happy to talk about how to become a software engineer. But please note:

If you’re looking for work, you should know my power to help is fairly limited. Based on your interests and experience, I can suggest places to apply. In some cases I can make intros, the effect of which is unknown. For some people, my efforts seem to help, but that’s about as strong a claim as I can plausibly make.

Also, there is one hard exception:

This offer does not apply if you’re trying to sell me something – sorry, not interested. This includes most “partnership” proposals.

Otherwise, please email me and I’ll do what I can to help.
