(Check here for more details.) I help nonprofit organizations improve service to their communities. This may be planning new technology, finding out what went wrong with that database project, using technology to help fight government or to rock the boat or getting the organization to think in totally new ways.
In my spare time I tend to be a shameless agitator and work at my full time hobby of owning a 90 year old home.
I have been involved in a variety of community organizations that provide public access to communications technology. I work to insure a noisy political system and work to promote freedom of speech.
