When I started this site, I wrote more words and posted fewer pictures. Now that’s largely reversed. I like to post abstract, architectural, and scenic pictures.1 And more than a few pictures of our dogs and cats. Once in a while, I share a quote. And I write about our family trips, longboarding, bicycling, and the other fun stuff we do. I even write poetry2 once in a long while.


Although this is my home on the Internet, I’m elsewhere, too.

  • Twitter. I share links from the various online materials I read, plus sporadic tweets of wisdom. Expect to see leadership, WordPress, electronic freedom, photography, education, and bicycling stuff there, along with links to some of my posts.
  • Instagram. I have fun on Instagram. I love their photo editor. If only it was available as a stand-alone app. At least I’ve learned how to grab large versions of my edits for posting here.
  • LinkedIn. For those who’d like to see my work experience and education, I’m also on LinkedIn.


I’m an engineer and a lawyer who has practiced patent law and criminal defense3 and has managed a team of Intel engineers for more than 15 years. Now I herd cats for a web development company that caters to nonprofits and NGOs.

You can find more information about my blog on the following pages.

Having a blog when everyone else has moved to Medium, Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr makes me feel like a dinosaur, but at least I’ve earned that distinction — I’ve been posting online since I ran a point plus node on Fidonet in the late ’80’s. In the mid-’90’s, My handcrafted website advertised my law practice. In 2004, I moved to a self-host WordPress blog.

Btw, the photo above is my Louis Pilloni “Isn’t this incredible?” impression.4 Thanks to Jamison Logan for taking and sharing this picture.


  1. Here are some of my favorite photos
  2. As long as you call amateur Haiku poetry
  3. I also did enough divorce law (three months) to confirm that I hate it. 
  4. To see the original, go to 2:45 in Raw Run: Louis Pilloni on Youtube. If I could have any superpower, it would be to skate like Louis. ;-) o/-<|: Jamison took this photo of me on the hike to Delicate Arch.
