Ramsey Nasser is a New York based computer scientist investigating programming languages as mediums of self expression. By looking at code as a vehicle of thought, he develops new languages to explore the relationship between human imagination and machine instruction. Zajal, his first language in this inquiry, is an attempt to reduce the friction between an artist's creative vision and functioning software.
His other work includes software and game design. Recently, he collaborated with IGF-nominated game designer Kurt Bieg on Twirdie, a Twitter powered golf game that uses the world's conversations as its core mechanic.
Ramsey's work has been featured on NPR, in ACM publications, at Babycastles, and at the Game Developers Conference.
