My daytime job is the public geek at the Takoma Park Maryland Library, a close-in suburb of Washington DC with residents from 92 nationalities. I help youth and adults use the 28 Linux stations that we make available seven days a week. I’m also an Adjunct Professor at American University where I teach a graduate class in educational technology. I’ve been blogging for about two years for the Community Voices blog of PCWorld.com where I cover the intersection of open source and community development, YouTube, social changes engendered by the Internet, and the changing role of public libraries (among other things.)
In my spare time I compose songs about Firefox and Firefox extensions. I believe freedom is important and that the civil rights movement has just begun. Sometimes I sing and frolic around my place of work.
In college I studied a couple years of mechanical engineering before landing up with a degree in philosophy. I guess you might say that truth is one of my hobbies, although I can’t say I’ve done more than play along the seashore diverting myself now and then.
