Hi, I’m Bill

I am a reader, a trekker, a nomad of sorts and a curious mind. I travel while I work as a backend web developer for clients. I also the founder of TrekkingSolo, a website dedicated to providing people with the information and links needed to hike the worlds best trails.




We do not remember everything that happens to us; we select only highlights. (If we didn’t forget, our minds could not work efficiently, because they would be cluttered with mental junk—the temperature last Wednesday, a boring conversation on the bus, every phone number we ever dialed.) Moreover, recovering a memory is not at all like retrieving a file or playing a tape; it is like watching a few unconnected frames of a film and then figuring out what the rest of the scene must have been like.
