About Me


Walking the Turtle.

I’m Peter Cresswell. Welcome to my world. It’s a small and simple one but maybe you’ll enjoy hearing about it.

I’m a programmer by trade. I make things. Hopefully useful things. But sometimes not. You can find me on Twitter or Github if you’re into those things.

I blog about technology, travel, financial markets, programming and lifestyle.

If you’re wondering if I’m a lazy bum, you’d be only half right :)

But there’s a great deal more to being ‘anti-work’ than just being lazy.

In short, ‘anti-work’ isn’t just being against ‘work’ in particular. Or being against working hard. Truth told, I’ve suffered my own dosage of workaholism which isn’t healthy, fun or uncommon to be honest. DHH has a great writeup on why you should fire your workaholics and I could not agree more.

Being ‘anti-work’ is being against wasting time. It’s being against mindlessly chasing money without a thought about why you want the money in the first place. It’s about taking control of your life and not chasing the crowd.

It’s not about being lazy. It’s about being smart.
