Nice to meet you

My name is David Albrecht. I have been developing technology (primarily software) professionally since 2009. I live and work in Oakland, California.

I'm currently a software developer at Starsky Robotics. We're a trucking company whose goal is full autonomy for long-haul trucking. We're automating the hard, boring part so drivers can spend more time at home with their families.

My wife Caroline builds housing at David Baker Architects in San Francisco. She is better-looking, smarter, and much better-dressed than me.

This site is my "lab notebook" for day-to-day life; it records observations, unsolved questions, and occasionally, things I've figured out. The daily format is inspired by Fred Wilson: "this site is "my diary, my sandbox, my therapist, and more than anything it is my bar where I get to be the bartender". My site is a place where everyone is welcome and the conversation is civil and lively.
