Computer Science

I have spent a long time working near computer science and occasionally in it, including a few years in embedded development, some time in web engineering, and a lot of time in and near the server room. Accordingly, I have spent a lot of time thinking about it and occasionally doing something about it. You can find some assorted writings, both technical and nontechnical, on the software engineering and IT fields collected together here with other materials on systems science. This page lists my work in computer science. It also focuses on systems engineering, specifically IT and software development.
