My name is Peter Davoust. I knit a mean hat.

My name is Peter Davoust, and I live in Seattle, Washington. I’m a Software Engineer, and while I love what I do, I like to spend my time outside of work messing about with various, non-software-related projects. I like to write and make things of all descriptions. My current obsession is my 1978 Yamaha XS650.

This blog has been floating around the intertubes since April 19th, 2009. I write about projects I’m working, thoughts I’ve had, things I’ve learned, or opinions I want to share with the world.

I like it when you comment on my blog posts; it tells me that you’re reading what I write, and lets me know what you think of it. And if you want to share the posts you like, that’d be cool too.

  1. Hi,

    My name is Drew Dominguez and I’m a high school student. Until today, we (my engineering class and I) got the OK from the higher ups at our district to order a makerbot. Exciting right? That was until today, when they decided to not release the money because they want some verification from people who already bought the makerbot to show that it’s a real project.

    Soooo I was wondering if you could email me with some sort of testimonial about you and your makerbot. Also, would it be ok if i provide our principal a link to your blog just as an added convincer. Really, we’re (my engineering class and I) so close to getting a makerbot but we just have to get over this one little hurdle.

    Please respond back as soon as possible. Again, any help in this problem would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Hi Peter.
    So nice to hear from you in your post on the DA Seminar blog today. Thanks for taking the time to formulate such an insightful response.

    And I’m delighted to learn that you’re doing such interesting things at McGill. Hope to read your work some day!

    • Hi,

      It’s great to be able to participate in goings-on at DA from a different perspective, and even from 900 miles away! I hope the seminar went well.

      Most of the writing I do ends up here on my blog. Unfortunately I haven’t been doing much fiction writing lately, but I’m hoping to write more often this summer. I can certainly send you a few things if you’d like to read them!
