Self PortraitMy name is John Weathers and this is my personal blog. I’m a software engineer living in Atlanta with my wife Melinda who is an owner of a software consulting business. We have a chow-dalmatian-retriever-collie-bulldog mix named Doobie and a pitbull terrier named Perrin.

I graduated from Georgia Tech in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics which was always my love and obsession in school, but since then computers and computing have usurped that place in my heart. I work on computers all day and then come home to often play with them. My wife and I are both currently graduate students in Georgia Tech’s Online Master of Science in Computer Science program. I am focusing my studies on machine learning and artificial intelligence.

I enjoy listening to a wide variety of music and try to listen to as much as I can throughout the day. I also enjoy reading books. I used to mostly read fiction heavily weighted towards the classics, fantasy and a tiny bit of science fiction, but I now mostly read books about history, politics, and economics.

I am a Christian, a practitioner of non-violence, and a Marxist.

  1. My son sent me your posting on the progression of headlines as Napoleon returned from Elba, asking if Donald Tromp’s welcome into the GOP will be similar. The timing of this comparison is astounding!

    Who was it that found and assembled those Headlines?

    Tom Banfield

  2. I’m afraid that I don’t recall where I first found them. It was several years ago that I saw it. Also, I’ve later seen signs that indicate it may not be true, but rather something akin to false attributions given to some famous person and turned into a meme.
