Who Goes There?

I've built this site around the idea that the conventional divisions between professional and personal life are artificial. They don't reflect the way we live, work, and play today. I don't shut down my professional responsibilities (with rare exception) on evenings, weekends, or holidays. Our competitive environment doesn't permit that, and I'd get bored.

Welcome! Warning: eccentricity lies ahead in these pages.
