By training and trade, I am a software developer. I spent about 15 years doing it full time in an office, and then I spent another 10 years doing it as consultant working out of my own home, with clients in Illinois, Indiana, and Maryland. Now I’m back to working a full time regular job. I enjoy software development a lot, but I won’t be writing about it very much here.
Windypundit is a blog about civil liberties, criminal justice, economics, and scientific thinking. I also sometimes write about photography, technology, culture, and cats. Really, it’s about whatever I feel like writing about.
In addition to Windypundit (which is pretty much a solo blog despite having a few other contributors), I used to sometimes post to the group blog Nobody’s Business (which is now basically dead) or to When Falls the Coliseum (which is alive, but I haven’t had anything to say in a long time). For a brief time, I was a community reporter for the Chi-Town Daily News before it closed.
There was a time when I made money from ads on Windypundit, but after annual earnings declined to the low 3-figures, I took the ads down. They may go up again once traffic picks up.
