Cuevano ~ Jorge Aranda

About me

I am Jorge Aranda, and this site is for my personal posts and texts.

I am a Lead Scientist and Software Developer at Limbic Media/Limbic Consulting, an interdisciplinary technology company that tackles unconventional engineering challenges. Before my latest incarnation I was an academic, studying coordination and communication in software organizations, first at the University of Toronto, where I did my PhD, and later at the University of Victoria, where I was a postdoctoral researcher. I also made relatively brief stops at Microsoft Research and IBM along the way. Before that life, I was a freelance software development consultant in Mexico.

I am originally Mexican, and a naturalized Canadian. I like reading and writing, running, vegetable gardening, cooking, coding, and boardgaming. I love Camus, Borges, Bolaño, Ibargüengoitia, Eliot, Proust, Brecht, Beckett, Stoppard, Feyerabend, Varo, Lynch, Fellini, and Bergman. I admire both Epicureans and Stoics, though on balance I think the Epicureans have it right, and I would like to follow on their footsteps. I live in Victoria, Canada, with my partner Val, our kids, and our cat.
