I’m Devin L. Ganger. In my current day job I’m a senior IT architect. I am a space enthusiast, electronics hobbyist, and amateur radio operator. I enjoy hiking, boating, and karate. I am a passionate soccer fan. My wife and I have a growing number of adult kids and we are owned by two cats.
In my dream job I write speculative fiction. I have no fiction published yet. These interests inform and shape the sorts of fiction I write.
I’ve done a lot of blogging since I first started back in the days of Usenet and LiveJournal. The first iteration of Devin on Earth was a self-hosted blog on a server farm I ran at home. When I decided that I did enough systems administration at work and didn’t want to spend all of my time off doing it, too, I moved my blog to a hosted website.
In the past several years, though, I’ve barely touched my blog. Even with the hosting tools, it was too much to maintain, so I let it rot. I felt guilty about that, so didn’t find reasons to come up with new content. Besides, my life had changed radically; I wasn’t doing much of the same kinds of things I used to blog about so passionately.
2019 has been a hell of a year, and it has kicked my ass in a lot of ways. But I’m kicking back. I’m finally clearing out deadwood and clutter that I’ve been holding on to for too long. One of those is letting go of all the stale content in the old version of my blog. I’m making choices to focus on my fiction writing and make that my priority. That’s not to say that I won’t write about technology or my hobbies as the mood strikes, but they’re not why this site exists.
So, here we are. Devin on Earth 2.0 — new, fresh, ready to move forward. Thanks for joining me.
