Welcome to my personal blog. Please see below for contact details.
If this is your first time here, these are the types of things I post on this blog (mostly work related, though *not* necessarily the PoV of my employers):
- how we as developers can better explain technology to the wider masses,
- some cultural observations as this ‘IT job’ has enabled me to travel around the world,
- commentary on the various ‘Open’ movements and what they are achieving in our international society; and
- many more random work-related musings and outlandish ‘change the world‘ ideas!
