In today's social media-focused and hyper-connected world it is perhaps unusual to find a "good old personal website". However, I've been active in the software industry since 1983 and have seen platforms come and go (dare I mention AOL, Geocities, MySpace, etc.), so I believe in maintaining a web presence that is indeed reachable from anywhere, is under my full control, and is not part of any particular silo.

Nonetheless I do maintain a presence on most social media sites, too, so please feel free to follow me on Twitter or connect with me on any of the other sites on the left, but please do write a short note on where we met or how you know me so that I can approve those connections appropriately. If you're really old-school, you can also reach me on the amateur radio bands. My ham radio operator call-sign is K1XML.
