I enjoy playing and coaching basketball, playing with and teaching
my kids, weightlifting, and hiking, backpacking and camping. I also
like to read: we have a couple thousand books around here.
My official education is in physical education and journalism (with
studies in computer science too). A few of my experiences have included:
managing and publishing monthly (print) newsletters and annual magazine;
coaching youth, select, and junior college basketball; building
and maintaining various websites (including a few that
cost from $75,000 to $5 million); writing sports, and Unix- and open
source-related articles; teaching BSD, HTML, Apache, BIND, mail (Exim), and
various other workshops; writing and documenting software and maintaining
open source projects; and a lot more.
I am employed by ISC and work as a manager over software releases
and technical writing.
My wife and I also run a book publishing company.
I have used a variety of different bios for
past classes, lectures, and writing. So I started collecting here.
