About Me Some interesting stuff.
Hey, my name is Greg and I’m 32. I really like making websites.
I started making websites when I was in school. I thought it was cool that you could create something on your computer, and anyone in the world would be able to see it. So I guess that’s the reason why I’m sat here writing another webpage, 18 years later.
Besides making websites, I like walking, playing guitar, and travelling. Then again, ask me that again in a year and I’ll probably give you a set of three different interests, so I wouldn’t rely on them too heavily to build a picture of my personality. However, if beer counts as an “interest”, then yes, that has been a consistent personality builder over the years.
Here are some bands/artists I like:
More about me.
I use the username inersha (or if it’s taken, in3rsha) at various places on the Internet. It’s just a phonetic spelling of inertia, which was the topic we were covering in my Physics lessons at the time.
Here are some of my accounts:

When I was 18 I started a poker strategy website. It was my first big project, but by the age of 23 I started to lose interest in poker. So I had a break from making websites for a while.
At the start of 2015 I was 26, playing at bitcoin poker sites, and hadn’t touched a HTML file in years. I needed a reason to get out of bed in the morning, so I decided to start making a website about my biggest interest at the time.
I don’t know what my skills are exactly, but I think one of them is explaining how things work in a way that is easy to understand. I also think that Bitcoin is currently the biggest possible challenge at this moment in time for explaining how something works, so here we go.
Why “learn me a bitcoin”?
It came to me when I was sitting in the shower and I couldn’t stop laughing about it. The juxtaposition of an educational website with an egregious grammatical error is immensely satisfying, and also acts as a reminder that being serious doesn’t help you to learn anything.
Take that academia.
Also credit to Learn You a Haskell for the influence.
