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


I met some of my Canadian neighbors on a walk through golden gate park. Seems like I’m not the only one escaping the winter in sunny California.


I feel like I am the god of improvised baking. Did you know that the mysterious empty jam jar in your AirBNB kitchen cupboard is exactly a cup? Did you know that ikea glasses make excellent cookie-cutters?

I'm away interning in SF for three months: too short a time to really get build up the comforts of home. Life can be kind-of spartan without them, so I try to make small changes. Maybe get a tea-pot, maybe do some baking. This time I made and froze 55 scones.

Me and my new twitter friends going for ice cream at Salt & Straw after work.

The ice cream at Salt & Straw is described as some of the best in North America. That may be true, but it still doesn't hold a candle to the perfection of Mary's Milk Bar.

I wander the earth in search for an equally revelatory scoop.


I'm going to go to Homebrew website club next week.

I need to pick a favourite twitter handle for my intern directory page: an unexpectedly overwhelming decision.


Things that would make my #twitter experience much better: if most of my interactions weren't with bots who want follow-backs. #indieweb
