this is the personal website of a certain tommy p. keane.
if that illustration over there doesn't look like the vegan, Ph.D. dropout, myopic, Scientific Engineer (born in the USA during the 1980s) that you're lookin' for, then you might've stumbled across the wrong tommy. thanks for visiting, though!
but, if this all sounds like the tommy p. keane that you were expecting, then, welcome!, again! this is basically the only site that tommy maintains on the internet(s), so whatever you're lookin' for is probably around here somewhere.
if you'd like to change the site theme, you can use the (Settings) button to configure the site cookies. otherwise, this is a cookie-less and tracker-less site.

tommy is a native speaker of American English, and it's the only language tommy is actually fluent in. one thing to watch out for, though, is that tommy tends to use British English spellings (double L, S instead of Z, extra U, and all that) with maximum effort and occluded reasoning. there's also a bit of a Bostonian influence, so tommy may do an ah instead of a u, or probably add an r to make things easier to pronounce. oh, not really a warning; but there is, of course, an accurately abundant use of commas. and as some thievery from academic writing, most of this site is written in the third-person plural (we, us, our, ...), even though it's just me, here, alone, again, naturally.
tommy tries to use they/them in any creative, explanatory, scientific, or professional writing; so as to be neutral and inclusive. tommy will legitimately be happy to be referred to by any pronouns you wanna use -- most likely order of preference: they / he / she. tommy doesn't have anything “figured out”, tommy's a pacifistic vegan, and probably a paranoid solipsist just tryin' to remain anonymous.
SaaS: Software as a Service -- a type of commercial software where clients subscribe to access a web-application, and when they end their subscription they (typically) lose access to the application.
e.g., “We sawr it...” instead of “We saw it...” -- very much like the phonetic Liaison in the French Language.
