So, blogging technology goes mainstream. The really cool thing about this, from my perspective (a shamefully egotistical perspective, admittedly), is that I invented Pingback. In truth, I came up with the original idea, Simon Willison and I enhanced it, it was further enhanced by various people through discussion on the Blogite mailing list, and then Hixie applied some real rigour to the thing and wrote the real spec. Nonetheless: wow. I’m well pleased with that!

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.
