Hello, World

What to say on a first blog post? Maybe a statement of identity.

I am:

  • A husband, married for 7 years to the love of my life.
  • Usually not that mushy in public.
  • A somewhat anxious father-to-be, more so because of a stillbirth last year.
  • A dog person, having had a dog (or two, or three) in the house for all but 4 of thirtysomething years of my life.
  • A cat person, too, but only in the last decade or so.
  • A Java developer and technical lead for a small IT services company.
  • A hobbyist photographer.
  • A church choir member.
  • An open source advocate, but not a zealot; I’ll use proprietary software when I need to.
  • An Ubuntu, GNOME, and Firefox user.

What is the blog for? For now, I’ll concentrate on information technology (especially open source software and US federal government technology issues), and photography. This is subject to change at any time, of course.
