Programmer at Google.

Hobbies: teaching teaching programming 1-on-1 with my idealized assembly language (https://github.com/akkartik/mu); thinking about better ways to convey the large-scale structure of codebases (http://akkartik.name/about).

When I favorite a comment I'm often referring to the entire sub-tree. Often my real favorite is a comment deep in its responses whose context you need the top comment to appreciate. Similarly, I often favorite stories not for the OP link but the discussion it engendered.
