Longer version

Welcome to my home on the Internet!

I’m educated as an engineer and a lawyer and I’ve practiced patent law and criminal defense (with just enough divorce thrown in the mix to know I don’t/wouldn’t like it, from either side of the conference room table).

Now I’m doing work I love for Intel,1 leading a small engineering design team that creates some cool design validation tools. When your computer powers up successfully, you can thank my team.

I have been writing online since the late 80’s2 when I was running a Fidonet “point plus node” with the tagline:

blogan >>--> hot air powers the point (1:105/4.27)


I used be a “serious” blogger and wrote about politics and religion. Now I’m a snapshooter extraordinaire who takes pictures of the sky, buildings, and Dawson Creek Park. I also write about family vacations, bicycling, and other fun stuff we do.

Elsewhere online

My blog is my home on the Internet but I am active elsewhere, too. Listed in order of my activity, with my more active accounts listed first:

  • Twitter. I share a bunch of links from the RSS feeds I read, plus rare tweets of wisdom. Expect to see WordPress, electronic freedom, photography, and bicycling stuff there.
  • Facebook. I’m on Facebook because my family and friends from school are there. I link some of my blog posts there, but not all of them. In other words, if you want to read what I write here, subscribe below. Accept no substitutes. ;-)
  • Instagram. I have fun on Instagram. I love their photo editor. If only it was available as a stand-alone app.
  • 500px. I post my best pictures there and get inspired by others’ photos.
  • Google+. I’m not very active on Google+. For that matter, I’m waiting for Google to pull the plug.
  • Pinterest. Pinterest is fun to look at but I don’t do much. I love the sailboat pictures there.
  • Ello. Brand spanking new account. Let’s see how this works.
  • Tumblr. I’m not very active on Tumblr either, but that’s because I’m just figuring it out.

  1. This is my personal blog. My words are my own and not anyone else’s. Although I work for Intel, I don’t speak for Intel and Intel doesn’t speak for me. More 
  2. That was long before blogs and people were more likely to pronounce blogan with a long “O” sound, making it rhyme with blowgun
  3. Yes, I prefer a RSS reader, but unfortunately, those didn’t catch on. Those of you who prefer RSS know how to subscribe to my full text feed. Not all the pictures end up there, but I do my best.
