Someday, down the road, when I finally get to play D&D again, it will probably be via an online platform like this.
 
From Roll20. Everything is getting uploaded, including stalwart meatspace occupant Dungeons & Dragons. Today, Roll20, an online “virtual tabletop,” announced its new licensing deal with D&D to offer the pen-and-paper RPG's original content on their digital platform.

Can't get your books to stand up at a con or trade show? A paper clip does the trick.

I don't know if I'll go so far as call him a hero, but he did point out that our current trend towards dense legal boilerplate that no one reads is not a reasonable one.

Yes. Hence the advent of electronic contracts.

I love the pose and the lighting here, especially how both combine to highlight the curve of her hips.

(Note: I'm not the Dan of "ArtOfDan" below, but I've seen his other stuff, and it's pretty good.)

Gender flashback from the 1960s

I had to get my birth certificate recently for some government paperwork, and upon looking at it, I see that for the slot of Father, there is a blank for "Usual Occupation" and "Industry/Type of Business".

But for the mother, there was no mention of occupation, not even a hint that she might have been working. Instead, the space that had been the father's occupation was taken up by asking whether the mother had had any previous children and how many.

Wow. Just... wow.

Introduction
Father of three, programmer, writer, etc.  I do weird stuff with my brain for fun and profit. :)

You can see my blog here: DanThompsonWrites.com

And my books: DanThompsonWrites.com/Books
Amazon author page: amazon.com/author/thompsondan

For my programming, I did 18 years working on Computer Aided Design programs, everything from add-ons to being on the core graphics team for AutoCAD.  These days I'm still doing a little consulting and some personal explorations with genetic algorithms.

I've been writing off and on since I was eleven, but I've been doing a lot more of it in the last 5 years.

I also have special needs kids, and I've spent a lot of my time on them for the last few years.
Bragging rights
Had a startup, sold it, written a few books, survived twins (so far), have done more strange things than most, but nearly as many as I'd like to.
Work
Occupation
I write fiction. I used to program for a living, and I probably still could, but for now I write fiction.
