My first programs were written on punched cards in FORTRAN, back when random access memory was called "core" and sold for one dollar a byte. Since then I spent a lifetime trying to find and use the most cost (and time) effective ways to deliver computational solutions. Forth generation programming languages and relational databases were two of my tools of choice. Today, I find Python to be the sharpest tool in the shed, and am working with (and on) it to make it easier for people to do good things. I specialize in not specializing, try to know a little about a lot of things, and make cross-platform tools.
