Welcome to the personal website of Davis Remmel. I try to put interesting stuff here, so please look around.

Blue links will keep you on this site; brown links will take you elsewhere. Hover over yellow stuff to read secrets. This site is best paired with a chill, introspective ambiance.

I am not a member of LinkedIn, GitHub, Facebook, Twitter, or any corporate social media. This site doesn't have any bogus terms of service.



My primary goal is to discover as much as possible about the Universe, imitating it with computational models. Some of my findings have been documented in Projects. Miscellaneous and old writings are uploaded to Posts. Interesting documents and FOIAs can be found in Letters.

I am an enthusiastic proponent of Free Software because we can't have a free society without controlling the computers that control us. I've supported Bernie Sanders and Howie Hawkins; please vote with me to elect people like them and put honest people in power. Knowing how wrong this world is breaks me into tears, and so does the grandeur of Nature but in a different kind of way.

Computing drives my inspiration, philosophical and spiritual beliefs. Currently hacking in Smalltalk and Python, I am a capable programmer in lots of languages. My favorites are those which recurse and reflect, because I find their symmetries and semantics simple, and therefore beautiful.

I live in rural Wisconsin, trying to envision my ideal reality, identifying the differences, and nudging the present direction here and there. I've spent time at the Free Software Foundation, and was a programmer sysadmin before that, but the real work I want to perform is the kind of research that takes 8 years of thinking, without any interest in profiteering. These kind of research dollars have mostly dried up, plus the cost of entering academia is prohibitively high, so for now I am pursuing projects in my own ambitions and curiosities.

My two biggest projects are RCU (which I'm starting to do more with) and The Space Mystery of Gemini 4, a yet-to-be giant dome film. I manage to get by with some tools and an industrial workbench, dreaming of access to sophisticated equipment and larger spaces.
