I’m Sam Stokes. I’m a British American immigrant, software engineer, and amateur mixologist. I live in San Francisco with my wife and two cats.

This blog may contain musings about: feedback loops, distributed systems, board games, cocktails, mindfulness, empathy, music.

For even more unpolished musings, I publish some of my notes, recipes and similar as a digital garden.

I’d love to hear from you about anything I wrote! My blog doesn’t have comments, but please feel free to reach out by any of the means listed below.
