I write about technology, mostly open source software and the web. I've been doing this since 1995. In recent years, I've focused on book-length guides to openSUSE Linux and WordPress, but also co-authored (with Carole Jelen) "Build Your Author Platform: The New Rules" in 2014.

I can help your readers better understand the technology they use. Personal computing is all about empowerment, and the World Wide Web can be the most important tool for expanding democracy around the world.

I live in Milwaukee, WI, but have a global world view.
