I'm Kyle. I'm a software engineer and a little geeky. This is my blog.
I run the Black Techies NYC. I've memorized Ohm's law.
I play more soccer more than I should. I'm a sucker for soca and a curlyfro.
My spirit lives in Trinidad. My body lives in Brooklyn.

#tbt. Started this year in the Bahamas after being bored in Miami, finding a cheap cruise only to get to the dock and find it had already sailed. Booked a flight at the docks and had to rush to Fort Lauderdale airport. Almost missed our train, and when we got it, left the plug part in the outlet on the train. Oops! Made the flight, rented a car, drove on the wrong side of the road, and finally, finally found a spot to chill out and relax.
It’s been a crazy year. 15 countries, 3 new cities, and I still have a month before I go home. Just submitted a talk to Social Media Week in Berlin, fingers crossed! I’m hoping to hit 4 more countries before I go home.

Sunset over the Bosphorus, looking back at the European side. You can make out the spires of the mosques faintly on the right. #nofilter #sunset #bosphorus #istanbul #turkey #landscape #waterscape (at Kadiköy Sahil)
It’s happening guys. I’m on my way to Asia! #thehappening #asia #Istanbul #Bosphorus #ImOnABoat #nofilter #landscape #cityscape (at Kadikoy-Eminönü Vapuru)
The Obelisk of Thutmose III was made around over around 1450BC, before it was plundered and brought to Constantinople. That means it’s like 3500 years old. Not to mention, the Romans couldn’t bring the whole thing, so they cut it into thirds and kept the top 1/3. The obelisk is pink marble, and it’s doing much better than the non-matching base put in by Theodosius.
I’m wondering how the Egyptians even quarried something 3x this size and managed to erect it without it breaking.
The background is the Blue Mosque.

Inside Hagia Irene, or Church of the Peace, the oldest church in Istanbul. It’s been stripped of everything; the tell-tale holes in the masonry give it away. I pause and imagine what it would have been like 1500 years ago in this place. #church #hagia #hagiairene #peace #istanbul #turkey #türkiye (at Hagia Irene)
