About This Website

This is my personal website. The domain name tham.es is a domain hack of my surname utilizing Spain’s ccTLD (España → .es). Most of the stuff here is just things I care about, things I find interesting, or things I want to organize and remember in the future.

The contents and implementation of this site — the design decisions, the tools and workflows used to create and publish it, and the organization of information throughout its lifecycle — are expressions of my personal values and preferences.


I’m Richard Thames, and I am interested in the intersections of data, software, technology, and policy. I listen to a bunch of podcasts and read just as many RSS feeds. I collect domain names, NES Homebrews, and GummyArts originals. Email me at [email protected].


All content and source code for this website is authored and edited in GNU Emacs. Most individual pages are generated from plaintext files authored as Org Mode plaintext. These markdown files are processed by Next.js to generate markup you rendered see here.

Cheers, 🥃!
