What I’ve been up to, well, recently.

Some of this is cool work I have been fortunate enough to do, and thus serves as my CV.  Some of this is like a journal, so I remember later. And some of this is me wanting to have a link to share when people I have not seen recently say, “So, what have you been up to?”
