Biography

I first started programming as a kid in AppleSoft BASIC. When hypertext (and, later, hypermedia) came out as a teen I was really excited by its potential as a storytelling medium. I made my first website in the winter of 1995. Back then it was all about interlinking and it sort of was a kind of storytelling. I still sometimes miss the day when a web page was a few paragraphs interwoven with links. Even if web 2.0 is all about user involvement, it feels in ways less personal than the days when it was still pretty common to come across a website in Netscape gray.

Later, I got involved in web development. I've developed content management solutions, publishing systems, and portals along with endless custom web apps for customers in the private, non-profit, and government sector.

I'm now currently working full-time at AACE, managing their online conference system, digital library (http://learntechlib.org), and publishing system, along with a few other sites including Academic Experts.
