What am I doing here?
About this webpage.
This started as a clearing house for my head...
But has become a way I can talk to my friends and family, especially my kids, without having to be extroverted.
A lot of the stuff here will be of little interest to anyone but me... Some of it won’t make sense to anyone but me...
Most of it can be categorized as drivel.
If this needs a story it would be about a boy, his wife, their child, their dog, some of their friends, much of their family and nothing at all...
A lot of nothing at all.
My wife and I are pretty private people... so this webpage may be a little sparse on detail sometimes, and perhaps seem a little silly...
And so this silly project is about nothing and has no story...
Hope that helps.
About the author.
I am in my mid-thirties.
I once left "IT" to find something more fulfilling.
I have not completely found it yet.
My kids are pretty close.
I went to school to study Applied Math and Economics.
I have no idea what I want to do when I grow up.
I am back in IT after finishing school.
I know more math now though.
I am colorblind.
I am an INTP.
I usually choose my words very carefully.
It does not make me any more right than if I rambled on.
Sometimes I ramble on.
I was a military "brat".
I have lived in four countries, and three of the United States.
I attended local schools in Australia and England.
I did not fit in, but I did make friends.
I still do not fit in, but I do have friends.
I think sometimes I seem elitist, superior and distant.
It is usually because I am uncomfortable with people.
I actually have no idea what anyone else in this world thinks of me.
Large groups of people make me uncomfortable.
I love meeting people.
I like almost everyone I have ever met.
It doesn't help me fit in.
I work in Boulder, Colorado for a research laboratory.
My view of IT has changed a lot in the last ten years.
I used to think IT was about computers and gadgets.
I now believe that the goal of IT should be to enable a workforce at the lowest levels and distribute decision making.
I've worked as a consultant from time to time, using information theory, service management, and lean to coach on IT culture.
I struggle with billing people for my time because I enjoy it.
I do some programming for the Serendipity weblog project.
It is open-source and very cool.
I’ve also written code for Gephi network visualizer.
I am not a programmer.
I don’t even play one in the internet.
I sell silly, nerdy T-shirts online. The pay is lousy but making people laugh is pretty rewarding.
My wife and I were high school sweethearts.
We dated for ten years before we got married.
I love her immensely.
