I'm a writer deciphering developer culture and emerging technology at Wired Enterprise. I also write a monthly column for TechCrunch. My main areas of focus are software development, data science, big data and open source.
I live in Portland with my wife and cat. And like any good Portlander, I'm hopelessly addicted to coffee, love microbrew, and prefer food carts to restaurants. In my spare time record and perform strange sounds asPsychetect, blog all sorts of stuff at Technoccult, draw, run and lift weights.
