The goal of the site (as I mentioned in my first blog post) is for me to exercise my writing and communicating muscles, and not (necessarily) to try to profess expertise on any given subject or to pour my heart (or at least my brain) out to the Internet. But despite my initial plan to skip this “About” section, I soon found the need to include at least something about myself to give some context. So, to that end, here is a very brief bio:
I have been employed with various Internet endeavors since the 1990s. I have worked as a web designer, developer, project manager, team lead, and consultant for a few decades, and I feel I can assert that I have a valid opinion when it comes to the internet related technology opinions expressed here.
In addition, I have been a musician for a few decades, and although I do not claim to be an expert, I can at least say comfortably that I am experienced. I have a website, JimBriggsMusic.com, for my music and blog entries related to that, so I am not sure I’ll be commenting so much on music here.
Finally, my formal education was in the field of economics, and I read a lot on that subject (especially what is today called “behavioral economics”). I’ve also lived overseas for years and have experienced a few different cultures (some very different), so you’ll probably see me venturing into discussions of culture from time to time as well.
In closing, I’d like to say thanks for coming to the site and reading some of what I have to say. As I mentioned in my first blog post, the point of writing is communication, and while it is possible to write when there are no readers, it is more rewarding when one’s writing can be shared.
