My name is Stuart. I do strategic thinking and synthesis: pulling together web, open source, and product design to make cool things. I can understand your business, and work with both management and the dev team. I provide advice and expertise. I do custom development for the web, mobile, and Ubuntu. I write code. I have a blog. I’ve written books. Read more about what I do.
