Like both the atoms that make us and the systems that comprise the universe in which we live, the Internet is a complex organism that we explore daily.
Here you will find a collection of my thoughts on the Internet and the systems that make it so complex. You will also find some of those thoughts realised in the form of open source code. Hopefully the resources contained within these HTML walls will encourage you to explore for yourself this rich and interesting landscape.
If you want you can find a little more about me and please do get in touch via twitter @LukeMorton.
