That said, I don't think the anti-communist blacklisting that happened in the 50s was a good thing.

- Writer and Free Thinker at LargeWriter and Free Thinker at Large, present
I've been a regular columnist for LinuxPro Magazine, Ubuntu User, Linux Journal, SysAdmin, and others. I am a public speaker, radio and television personality, and a well known voice in the Linux and open source universe.
I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge with a completely unrealistic desire to know everything. Science and technology are my passions; as such you'll find me unreasonably dedicated to the pursuit of reason (in case you have to ask what 'Free Thinker at Large' means). Oh, and I'm terribly opinionated. Other passions include music, art, food, wine, and the occasional single malt scotch.
I take great pleasure in making fun of your belief system; I sincerely hope you enjoy making fun of mine as well.
I'm also a published science fiction author and editor, a onetime Editor in Chief, a pilot, a Top 40 disc jockey, and I fold a mean origami T-Rex. Coolest of all, I'm a seriously lucky husband to my wife, Sally, and a seriously lucky Dad to my boys, Sebastian and Tristan.
