Until mid-2007, I was a professional software developer and web technology expert based in Denver, Colorado. I still dabble in code, but only as a hobby now.
My contributions to the world of open-source software are fairly modest:
Also, in the early 2000s, I wrote and compiled a collection of XML and XSLT related resources of interest to developers, especially those who need to be brought up to speed on Unicode and character encoding issues.
After the early success of that venture, in late 2002, I resolved to share as much of my expertise as possible through Wikipedia and any other public outlets.
See, I strongly feel that whatever you learn, you should teach. It's something you have to make time for, and you have to look at the people you're helping as potential colleagues, rather than competitors. Too many people jealously guard their tech knowledge, fearful of their job security. They've stood on the shoulders of giants, but they aren't going to let anyone stand on their shoulders...and what does that make them?
