Take no one’s word for it is written by me, Sherif Soliman. I was born in Egypt, raised in the Middle East, educated in Canada, and now live in Seattle, Washington.

I write about a mix of technical and non-technical topics. You can see a complete list of posts on the Archive page. I also write the occasional book note and album note.

I’m a big fan of people getting in touch and am always interested in conversation.

This static site was made using Jekyll. I started off with the default theme and then made css/sass and layout modifications. I also use bigfoot for footnote formatting and popups.
