Writer. Plain.
Introduction

I have authored/co-authored over 20 books, including recent works on JavaScript, HTML5, and Node.js. You can see my in-print books at O'Reilly, my primary tech publisher. You can also buy my books at O'Reilly, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other places where tech books are sold.

I live in O'Fallon, Missouri, though I have planted my butt in other parts of the country (including Washington, Oregon, Boston, Vermont, Arizona, and San Francisco). My focus has been on books about technology, but I'm currently working in other topics such animal welfare, the environment, sustainable agriculture (including issues related to food safety), and bad politics. But then, everyone writes about bad politics.

My Twitter account is @shelleypowers, my Facebook page is at Shelley.Just, and I sometimes write to Google+

Asked when Zigbee would be turned on, and Google deleted my comment. 

So much for the "bad people have left the company".

How can you tell if Vermont will prevail in the lawsuit filed against its new GMO labeling law, Act 120? Easy: Congress decides to create a national anti-GMO labeling law. More on this in a moment. First, though, a recap on the court challenge. In April, Judge Christina Reiss issued a decision ...

I have attempted to upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04 from 12.04.5 three times, failing each time. The points of failure are complex and seemingly many. I can ignore the necessary upgrade until 12.04.5 hits end of life in 2017, but whatever cruft is preventing a clean upgrade may be allowing all sorts of ...

I'm a scientist who's also a cartoonist. So I've got a pretty keen interest in scholarship and empirical research on humor. And I want to talk about research and sexist jokes, and where that leads. It's a response to a narrative about the Tim Hunt situation that goes something like this: ...

Last year I wrote about a Wyoming family and the big, bad EPA huffing and puffing at their door. Seemingly, the Andy Johnson family was being threatened with outrageous fines, just for putting in a simple stock pond. A little digging, though, showed that the story was far more nuanced.
