I’m Matthew. Originally from a small town beyond the suburbs, now a blue line boy. I’m a software developer, mostly web stuff with Ruby and JS. I like to tinker, ride my bike, and like everyone of my generation watch the same old episodes of the Simpsons forever.
Programming, Bikes, Nintendo, etc.
bigshoulders.city is a Mastodon instance for Chicagoans current, former, and future. Its name comes from Carl Sandburg, who once compared ships pulling out to “mastodons, arising from lethargic sleep.” Our goal for bigshoulders.city is to build a community of friends and neighbors across the Windy City. Toot your pho place recommendations, meet-up ideas, pothole gripes, creative dibs, and cross-town baseball taunts—whatever you want, as long it abides by our short and sweet content policy.
