Infotech inevitably transforms our society. Open Source and open standards are mechanisms for ensuring such transformation is collectively owned and driven, are tools for individual empowerment, and help bring successful and sustained positive outcomes. I see great things happening in other places around the country in the sphere of government transparency and Open Data, and want to see similar successes happen in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio as well.
I want to clean up, structure, and catalog public data available in NEO -- to create a strong foundation from which we can build apps and visualizations that bring public data closer to the public. I'm currently pretty interested in geospatial/mapping stuff, too.
Web developer & consultant as Substrate Websoft. I strategize, design, develop, and deploy web sites and applications -- particularly for organizations focused on environment, education, and empowerment.
