Stranded Output is the title of a YouTube channel (which is currently dormant) I came up with which eventually became my screen name. It’s obviously a play on words with ‘standard output’.

When I was a child I was diagnosed with dyspraxia which affects my motor coordination and working memory. It also has some parallels with ADHD in that I have poor focus and attention. This means I have a tendency to get bored with things very easily and switch from hobby to hobby constantly. The upside of all this is that I have practical experience with many, many different things. I believe people that embrace their stranded-ness will have all manner of insights that are more than the sum of their parts.

This is what I like to call “Stranded Output” - essentially it’s a nerdier way of saying “jack of all trades, master of none” but a little bit deeper than that I suppose.

Now that that’s out of the way you may know me from the Linux Lads which is currently my main project. I’ve created this site as an extension of the podcast where I can write about what interests me. I’ll likely be adding more to this site in the future as I see it as a sort of repository for all my random brainwaves.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk!
