Hi. I'm Luke. Email - GitHub - About Me - Twitter - @nemo#4926 I'm a programmer. I primarily work on Sia, a distributed cloud storage platform. I studied Computer & Systems Engineering at RPI for 3 years before my long-time friend David and I were bitten by the startup bug. We co-founded Nebulous, which developed Sia for 6 years. In 2021, we spun out the Sia Foundation, a non-profit that handles Sia core development, and I left Nebulous to become its president. Aside from programming, I like Urbit, recommending music, and Hood® Golden EggNog. Here's some stuff I've made: Blog posts: - The Pros of Conds - You Could Have Invented Skynet - A Lightweight Wallet for Sia - One year of us - Talking to Sia Hosts from...Ruby?? - Files as Capabilities in us - How to Use Sia Responsibly - How to Use Sia Irresponsibly - A Ransom Attack on Hardware Wallets - Hacking a ProgComp with Side Channels - What is a Monad? - How to Access a Running Binary on Linux - Hacking Go Maps for Fun and Profit Academic papers: - Streaming Merkle Proofs within Binary Numeral Trees - Sia: Simple Decentralized Storage Talks: - Utreexo in Context Go packages: - frand: A fast-key-erasure CSPRNG in userspace - flagg: Barebones subcommand handling - uint128: A high-performance uint128 package - blake3: An implementation of the BLAKE-3 hash function - intersort: Sort anything - freeze: Make any Go object immutable via mprotect Other projects: - Goldilocks Zone Finder Other writing: - Invisible Networks 2022 - Day 4 I'm also a big fan of Advent of Code; my solutions can be found here. Sadly, Go is not the ideal AoC language, so I have been developing a new language (perhaps the world's first?) optimized for competitive programming. If you're interested in collaborating on such a project, get in touch! :) .
