I'm Alex Kearney, a PhD student studying Computer Science at the University of Alberta. I focus on Artificial Intelligence and Epistemology.

I talk a lot about travel, and dev, and grad-school, and indieweb, and yeg, and article, and tech, and japan 2019, and japan, and art, and other things.

Today, while heading by the Belgravia elementary school, I found a Coyote perched on top of the tobogganing hill. It's pretty brazen for a coyote to be out in a public area like this. After getting spooked, it loped its way through the elementary school playground.

I've been debating whether to lug my camera around on the off-chance I happen to find something interesting when I'm out and about. This was reinforced by the near-miss I had yesterday with the great horned owl perched on my neigbour's garage.


I found two old friends while I was sorting my lego.
