This Guy Right Here

My name is Maciej Cegłowski, I'm a painter and computer guy. I live in San Francisco.

This site is a collection of blog posts and short essays I've been writing since 2002. These are mainly about travel and food. You can find links to articles by category and a list of the all-time most popular articles on the front page.

You can find my old resume here. I run a bookmarking site called Pinboard.

I also run the Bedbug Registry, a searchable database of bedbug reports in hotels and apartment buildings across the US and Canada.

My name is pronounced "MAH-tchay". It's an archaic Polish form of "Matthew". I was born in Warsaw, Poland, in 1975, but accidentally immigrated to the United States when I was six years old. Although I still speak the language with my mother, and have family in and around Warsaw, I'm as American as gooseberry pie.
