This Website

This website is my internet home. I write mostly about technology, but I don't let this stop me from posting about the occasional off topic thing. I will occasionally write about non-technology things. Mostly, this website is my attempt at creating the website that I've always wanted to read.


Hello, my name is Jesse Atkinson. I am a coder. I currently work at SocialCode as a Software Engineer. I spend most of my day in front of a MacBook Pro writing JavaScript (with Backbone & jQuery), Ruby (on and off Rails), CSS (with Sass), and HTML—althought occassionally I flirt with other languages. I am passionate about web standards, music, film, politics, menswear, health & fitness, and technology as a tool for education.

I'm married to the beautiful Lauren Atkinson who continually challenges me to be better. Detroit native currently living in San Francisco.

Lastly, I'm also a singer, songwriter, and guitarist. I was in a band called the Jacets for many years. We put out a record. You can watch me perform Drive-By Truckers' song Righteous Path on an epsiode of It Might Get Personal here.

My current set-up and toolset is as follows:

  • This website is proudly created and hosted on Squarespace. I love it.
  • Domains are all registered with Namecheap.
  • I write all my code and most of the posts here in TextMate.
  • If you want to see my dotfiles (and I mean who doesn't) you can see them here


If you'd like to check out my less-professional presence on the internet look no further:

These are all the services that I am on that I care to list. You've got to be on "me" overload at this point, right?
