Sid Mani's blog

Hello! My name is Sid Mani. You may know me as the guy who built this go-kart or the creator of the Zencyclopedia. I'm a 20-year-old math student at UCLA. I enjoy difficult problems, driving fast, studying Japanese, and running.

This website is emphatically not a portfolio. It's my attempt at uncensored self-expression, and will necessarily contain objectionable content from time to time.
