Subscribing to my blog

When I write a new blog post on, I use Substack to notify anyone who is interested. Typically I write only a handful of posts per year, so this is a very low-volume email list.

I mostly write about distributed systems, databases, and information security. When I write, I try to make it thoughtful and clearly reasoned, avoiding half-baked thoughts, so that it is worth your time to read.

At the moment there isn’t anything on Substack that is not also on my blog, so it’s just a notification mechanism. You can also follow me on Twitter at @martinkl, if you like.
