This quotation, for which I haven’t been able to find an attribution, resonates:
Find three hobbies you love: one to make you money, one to keep you in shape, and one to be creative.
See the sidebar for some examples of my work.
Exercise: I play racquetball, softball, and tennis, ride a bike often, and dance whenever possible.
Creative: I play mandolin, fiddle, accordion, guitar, and tenor banjo. I play traditional dance music in a number of styles: Cajun, Old-time, Contra, Trad Jazz, Waltz.
Usability Luddite: The name of this blog comes from my belief that the underlying functionality of a program is more important than demonstrating the newest widget. The trick is to figure out which innovations actually improve usability and which ones just get in the user’s way.
