About me

From 2004 to 2014 for my open source Java project had over thirty-five thousand downloads, which turns out only averages to about 9 downloads a day, but from over 150 countries.

That product is an open source Java program for software developers I call Class Viewer.

Which being open source is free, and lived my life during that time without it seeming remarkable until looked over those stats at the ten year milestone, and then was like, huh? Seemed like so much an abstraction as without those web stats, how would I know? Yet real people all over the world with interest revealed by a download. Have pondered that much.

This blog was created in 2005 originally as maybe a tech blog in support of the project but developed more into a place to try and figure things out, as I like to write, and think out loud with my writing.

Grew up in the South, in Tift County, just outside a little town called Tifton, GA, in the United States. A farming community.

Practicality matters to me as something from that culture.

Things are supposed to work. And is so much better when work well.

Problem solving has always been important to me, and science as well. Have just an undergraduate degree, which is in physics. So got some training in science. Have some other training as well.

Like Java for practical reasons: it travels the world. And with just one application have my own experience with that, which I like to reference, and now like to call myself a meta innovator.

Figuring things out, or at least trying? Is so much more fun, am certain.

Got a profile photo to include where realized after, whether looks like am smiling or frowning? Is so much about your mood.
