I’m Rob Mecham. I’m a web developer. Online, I usually go by stemmetje. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah with my wife and kids.

The word stemmetje is Dutch and it simply means voice. It is pronounced stem–et-cha.

This Site

This site uses a custom Django-based backend that gets cached to the filesystem for static-like performance. I’ve tried to make the site a good citizen of the web, using standard HTML5 and Atom.

I’ve made use of two excellent open source fonts to realize the typefaces on this site. The main body text is a serif font called Linux Libertine. The sans-serif font used for headers is Raleway.
