Over-zealous copy-editing

The LA Times ran a review of the opera Die Frau Ohne Schatten, wherein Mark Swed, the reviewer, referred to it as “an incomparably glorious and goofy pro-life paean“. And someone changed pro-life to anti-abortion. Oops! Gotta watch out for those global search-and-replaces, dude. LAObserved has more—I can’t help but wonder what Bill Walsh would make of this.


I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
