This is one of the funniest christmas traditions in Catalonia: Els Caganers! It's Christmas time and you start seeing figurines of anyone you can imagine taking a dump :D

My name is Noel and I'm a developer/entrepreneur based in Barcelona, Spain.

I was within the "silicon valley hamster wheel" mentality for a while but I've realized it's not what I want to do with my life, so I am now working and looking for opportunities that are more sustainable and focus on what I'm passionate about: Open Source, Privacy, etc.

You can find more about me in my website and keep up with what I'm doing on my "now" page:

Hello there! Nice to meet you fellow Thought Shrapnelrs.

What better place to confess that for months I read "Thought Shrapnel" as "Thought Sharpnel". Yeah I'm not a native english speaker, and I thought it meant something to "sharpen your mind", and that's why the regular bite-sized updates πŸ˜‚
