Yes. I'm particularly interested in XML work that streamlines business processes, but I do design work when the project seems a good fit, and I'm a good fit for designers seeking to back-fill their developer resources.
I co-authored the WROX book "XML Problem Design Solution", so of course I would recommend it for basic intro to some of the technology.
I have used Joomlart.com designs with heavy modification to suit the client's design objectives. I find http://safari.awprofessional.com is a good resource too, and helps me hold the line on book purchases.
I run a local consultancy providing technology solutions to marketing and operational problems. Skills include design, XML, databases, and scripting. I'm also a volunteer on Rolesville's park advisory board.
I certainly appreciate the insights that members have shared over the years. It's a great way to meet people who are involved with the Web, one way or another. The more people step up, the more we are doing through the meetup.
