Matthew Howell is a human who tries
to make software and sometimes other things.

Hello there, visitor of websites. Welcome to, a small collection Internet stuffs that exists for several reasons.

And what does one do here?

First, perhaps, one might subscribe to my email newsletter, Pizza, which has been very occasionally delivering emails about technology and other things since 2015.

Next, for the more aimless browser, there are a few loosely organized places to poke around. Find a bit of writing, collected in Notes, a bit of miscellany assembled in Projects, and a reading list recorded in Reading.

And last, for those who have exhausted all of the text on this page, About contains paragraphs upon paragraphs of more words.
