So let’s start! Tell us a bit about yourself. For example, name, profession, and personal interests.

My name is actually Bob Wright and I claim to be human though some may think me a bot. My interests are primarily coding, drawing, and writing.

This illustration is a non-ordered representational flowchart of my general daily activities.

Interesting! What was your latest Hackernoon Top story about?

It is a tutorial article about using NodeJS and openPGP to support a PGP https: API that is part of a user logon application.

Do you usually write on similar topics? If not, what do you usually write about?

Aside from technical articles I also enjoy writing fiction, especially comics and graphic novels. I also like to write poetry.

Great! What is your usual writing routine like (if you have one?)

I procrastinate as long as is humanly possible and generally try to compose my content "in my mind" before I start writing or illustrating.

Being a writer in tech can be a challenge. It’s not often our main role, but an addition to another one. What is the biggest challenge you have when it comes to writing?

The synopsis? Getting those first few words figured out.

What is the next thing you hope to achieve in your career?

Seriously? Finding meaningful gainful employment. ☺

Wow, that’s admirable. Now, something more casual: What is your guilty pleasure of choice?

As I have advanced in age I have found it best to avoid such pleasures as may induce feelings of guilt. This also makes my activities easier to explain.

Do you have a non-tech-related hobby? If yes, what is it?

I like to write and draw.

What can the Hacker Noon community expect to read from you next?

I have an article in the works about using steganography and images as part of a user logon scheme. The code is written in PHP and it is all working so I already have a pretty good start on it.

The next thing I will address following that is how to programmatically for low gas or no gas fees mint NFT images.

What’s your opinion on HackerNoon as a platform for writers?

I like the platform. I like the encouragement it provides contributors. I like the large amount of exposure that it grants my work. I like to share useful code and ideas and this is a great platform for that!

Not to pander, but hey I am grateful.

Thanks for taking time to join our “Meet the writer” series. It was a pleasure. Do you have any closing words?

I'd like to send props and shout outs to all the folks who contribute this content and edit this content and same to those that read it.
