I’m Jeremy Zawodny and this is my WordPress blog.

I used to post more frequently on my self-hosted MovableType blog, called simply Jeremy Zawodny’s blog.  But I’ve grown tired of having custom hacked software and a comment moderation nightmare (among other things).  So now I’m putting stuff here.

I’m a software engineer, pilot, husband, and father to many cats (some fosters).

I work at craigslist by day, hacking on back-end infrastructure and data systems.  I also spent 8.5 years working at Yahoo, and roughly 2 years at Marathon Oil.

I fly a Glastar (N97BM), A36 Bonanza (N200TE), Just Aircraft SuperSTOL (N119AM) as well as high-performance gliders in the Northern California and Nevada / Sierra Nevada region. I completed my Instrument Rating (IFR) in the late summer of 2015. I hope to work on my Commercial Pilot rating soon and then start on learning to fly helicopters.

    I noticed you have your new blog on WordPress, and you published some code in the blog series. I have a question: Do you paid version? because i try to write some blogs (still a newbie) on wordpress, but found it not code friendly. Any suggestion would be appreciate.
