Esse quam videri.

To be rather than to seem to be rather than to seem to be rather than to seem.

So what is Skalon?


Hey there! I'm Sanjay pronounced-like-Jason-with-the-syllables-switched Kannan. I study Computer Science and German at Stanford University, and I supposedly run this site. Most of the time I have no idea what to do with this domain name, so I hide my insecurity behind self-deprecating humor and postmodern absurdity. I used to attend this school and these institutions as well.

In 2015, I was an #intern at #Twitter, where I managed not to get #fired from my first #adult #job. A year later, I worked on the singularity at Google Research. I most recently hacked on some compilers at Two Sigma, but you probably know me best as the sole proprietor of Crappy Bird.

Here's my up-to-date (?) résumé.
Or maybe you do the LinkedIn thing.
We should talk sometime.
