Author of the GNL Tao Te Ching. Contributed bulk content to the c2 wiki - main contributor on better than a thousand pages, most unsigned. Inventor of the Stone Society, an oddball socioeconomic system which one day will see an open source implementation. Led the fight for online civil rights in Australia a few years ago - got my mug in newspapers and marched a large gaggle of geeks down the middle of Pitt Street shouting "free speech now!". Employed as chief software architect at Omnigon International where I'm helping cook up something very unusual. Particularly noxious poet. Desperately in love with my adopted island-nation of Coronado, CA. Married with cats.

Recent blog entries by pete

I've blown in from Ward's wiki looking for a new home. I'm not certain advogato is quite the community for me, but I'm here to get a feel for the place. I can't say I've contributed a lot of free software per se - CvWiki is about the size of it - but I've got a fair amount of open content out there, the most popular being the GNL. Recent experiences on wiki have soured the form for me, so my main interest here is considering alternatives.
