I am Brian Hackett.  I own and run Web Replay. I used to work for Mozilla on the Firefox web browser.  Earlier, I got a Ph.D. at Stanford and a B.S. at Cornell.  This blog is about the other stuff I do.

I like trees, mountains, water and wildlife (not an exclusive list!), and do a fair amount of outdoorsy stuff.  This includes scuba diving, sea kayaking, whitewater kayaking, sailing, road biking, mountain biking, backpacking, rock climbing, mountaineering, canyoning, backcountry skiing, surfing, and kiteboarding.  I also do landscape and wildlife photography.

In December 2011 I began living in a tent trailer, working remotely and roaming around and enjoying the western US. In August 2013 I met Lisa, who lives much the same lifestyle. Less than two weeks later I moved into her van, and we married in September 2014. Since then we have continued to live and work from our vans, house, and boat, Magic.
