My Interests

Here are a few words and links about my professional interests. I'm mostly self-taught: I'm driven by my love of Internet technology and the pleasure of learning and using new skills and tools.

eXtreme Programming: I like XP for many reasons, as I explain in my little essay On XP: A Humanist's Programming Methodology.

Open Source and Free Software: As a self-taught programmer, and as an entrepreneur whose major product is his own smarts, I like having access to good tools that other people made because they thought the tools were needed to build a better Internet. I think open source levels the playing field for smaller businesses and for disruptive business models.
