My blog posts and tweets are my own, and do not necessarily represent the views of my current employer, my previous employers or any other party.

Many of these blogs were originally posted elsewhere on public sites, but have been re-posted here with attributions to the original location -- strictly as a means of a centralized archive of my perspectives.

I do not do paid endorsements, so if I am appear to be a fan of something, it is based on my personal experience with it. If I am not talking about your stuff, it is either because I haven't worked with it enough or because my mom taught me "if you can't say something nice ... "

It’s almost here !
