My name is Alex Smith. is my personal website; it’s named after a great song by Autechre.

I’m a recovering logician. In school at Carnegie Mellon I studied both mathematical and philosophical logic, somehow earning two degrees and writing a thesis in the process. I also tried to teach an AI set theory and teach some undergrads basic symbolic logic online as part of a research group.

While at CMU, I actually spent most of my time at WRCT, Carnegie Mellon’s radio station. I was somehow in charge of it all as General Manager from May 2006 to May 2008. On Tuesday nights from January 2005 to May 2009, I DJed a show called Quantized Energy; I played IDM, avant-garde, drone, noise, math rock, and reggae. I miss it very much; there is no better way to learn about music and stay in touch with music than being part of a great local radio station.

I moved to Brooklyn in 2009. I still live and work there; by day I do content strategy for Huge, a digital agency specializing in large-scale, user-focused, sustainable websites. I’ve transferred the energy I used to spend on radio into cooking, eating, drinking, and making cocktails, coffee, and beer.
