Welcome to my website!

Working in a research environment both allows and requires me to keep up with trends in information design, presentation, use and value. As a strong supporter of Open Access, I have been strongly encouraged (and needled) to providing better access to my own writings and opinions as well as allowing for a more public discussion of some of the issues, products and trends that fascinate me.

I hope whoever finds this will also find value - and feel free to include your own postings and comments.
