About

Welcome to my personal blog.  Please see below for other places I exist on the Web.

Biog: Flanders is a technology innovator at heart, with a passion for open technologies which are *by and for* the communities he serves.  “Helping brilliant people to do what they do better is the reason why I’m never far from an open source and/or academic research community.  I love that I learn something new everyday of my life, always asking ‘how can we make this more efficient?!”.  Tech is one of several efficieny techniques David is known for (API and standards), others successes have come via community (many hands make light work), sector specific economics analysis (open collaborations partnerships), training (translating complex technologies for broader speak and use) and marketing (because psychology is the API to the brain).
