Established in 2003 by Joey Day, this is an exercise in critical thinking and writing about Christian theology, apologetics, technology, software engineering, web development, ramen noodles, and whatever other topics strike my fancy.
About the author
Joey has been designing websites since 1998, and has been passionate about web standards since 2003. In 2008 he got a MacBook and an iPhone and hasn’t looked back. He types on the Dvorak keyboard (but you shouldn’t) and has been known to dabble in double-entry bookkeeping (seriously). Since 2012 he has made his living engineering software on the ServiceNow platform, at first for a higher-ed non-profit and more recently for a mortgage company.1
Though he was raised a sixth-generation member and completed a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Joey left the LDS faith in 2002 and is now an Evangelical Christian. Sometimes he writes about Mormonism, but he tries his best to treat the subject with candor and fairness.
Joey has been married to the charming and beautiful Janene Day since 2005 and together they have two adorable kids, a 6-year-old who is too smart for his britches and a 3-year-old who has her daddy wrapped around her little finger. They worship and fellowship at Jordan Valley Church (PCA) in West Jordan, Utah.
If you need to contact Joey for any reason (comments, questions, corrections, concerns, compliments, constructive criticism, scathing insults, etc.), you are welcome to reach out to him on Twitter or Facebook.
About the blog
This site was made with 100% post-consumer recycled pixels. It was lovingly handcrafted on a Mac and an iPad using the excellent Coda software by Panic and the wonderful Textastic app by Alexander Blach. It shouldn’t matter which browser you use to view the site, but you really should browse happy.
The site is powered by the mighty WordPress blogging platform with a custom theme based on the time-saving Underscores starter theme. The Akismet service keeps spam at bay, and the W3 Total Cache plugin keeps everything super speedy.
This site lives on a real honest-to-goodness cloud where it is affectionately cared for by the fanatical folks at Rackspace. It runs on the ever-dependable Ubuntu operating system. Joey uses the very convenient Prompt app to manage the server when he’s on the go, and he monitors uptime with the amazing Pingdom service. All his domain names are registered with the refreshingly uncomplicated Hover. Development revisions of the design are tracked using the one-and-only Github.
