MiscellaNiackery, a blog about this and that, isn’t beholden to any particular niche, though there are certainly recurring overarching topics — mainly the arts, politics, and the web.
And interestingly, I think, there are arguments to be made for how each of these topics is somehow related. It might not be much of a stretch of the imagination to see why politics and the arts are linked through juxtaposition and contrast of general values. But how does the web fit in? Well, the more code I’ve learned to write, the more beauty I see in it, for one. But beyond seeing web development as more of art, it’s also starting to play a bigger role in how politics play out.
Ultimately, MiscellaNiackery is a representation of my interests outside of those covered by JourNiackery and Green Niackery.
