First Post: Intro and Objectives


My name is Spencer Smith and this is my first blog.  This will be a place where I will discuss two of my favorite subjects; Technology and Fitness.  Sometimes more fitness, some times more tech, and hopefully some cross over.  Expect a healthy amount of sarcasm, corny jokes, and general narcissism.

Who am I?  I have been a software developer since I began an internship in 2004.  My focus and passion is on web development but I also spend much of my day with mobile devices and software, games, sci fi, and the full gamut of all things geek. 

But this blog is not just tech, it's also fit!  After years of soccer and baseball growing up, it was wrestling in high school that showed me how fun striving to become truly competitive can be.  Over the years I have developed an interest in various forms of self improvement.  I have experimented with several diets and protocols for losing weight, gaining weight, improving strength, speed and endurance.  I have tried many diets from vegetarianism, to whole foods, juicing, and peleo.

I am not an expert in any of these fields but for some reason, some people seem to want my input or to "know my secrets."  For that reason, I decided it might be a good idea to start blogging these things and also make them available to people on the web so I don't keep repeating myself.  Those who know me are probably thinking I must be kidding myself, I love to talk about this stuff with people.  I have been known to go on and on till you people zone out or just walk away.  At any rate, whenever I treat myself as a guinea pig or have some tech subject I feel like droning on and on about, I will come post the results here and continue to think people are interested in what I have to say...that's what blogs are for right?!

Thanks for checking it out...stay a while and listen.
