<latemp_subject "Shlomi Fish’s Writings about Computing" />

Being a software developer, that is also very interested in computers and like
to program for fun, I started conveying some of my thoughts about computing
and this field’s social aspect in various essays I wrote. I hope to concentrate
all of them under this section of the homepage.

Some of these essays will require some technical knowledge, but most of them
can be read by anyone with a pseudo-technical background.
