Hi, my name is Sean Gillies, and this is my blog. Blog is short for "web log". Individual posts to a web log are called "posts", not "blogs". I write about running, cooking and eating, travel, family, programming, Python, API design, geographic data formats and protocols, open source, and internet standards. Mostly running and local geography. I live mostly in Fort Collins, Colorado, and sometimes in Montpellier, France. I work at a startup named Mapbox, building location data services and products. I appreciate emailed comments on my posts. You can find my address in the "about" page linked at the top of this page. Happy New Year!
