I started this blog because I thought it was about time I documented some of the things that I spend my time on. I’m one of those folk who spend a lot of time building things, taking things apart, tinkering and fiddling until everything is ‘exactly so’.
“Richard is a passionate self-confessed technology geek.”
I have an insatiable curiosity about all things, principally technology and the environment. This blog is mainly for my own personal amusement, but, given the awesome power of Bing, I am sure it won’t be too long before somebody stumbles across these musings and who knows, perhaps just one of those souls might find some of the stuff I blog about interesting too.
In the beginning… I started my career as an intranet developer, writing some very bad code in ASP classic for a local council. Not long after that, the world was on the brink of the much-hyped Microsoft .NET previews, and I lovingly and happily converted from being an ASP geek into an ASP.NET geek. And that’s where it all started, really (I used to play with Perl/CGI too so I’m not entirely non-open source!).
In recent years I have focused much more on solution architecture and spend a lot of my time optimising software solutions (web or desktop based, or any combination of the two) to meet accessibility and usability standards. I am a usability evangelist and I like to make things as simple as possible (but not simpler, to quote a very clever gentleman).
Long story short, since then I have built and consulted on over 50 SME web sites and regularly enjoy consulting on a variety of innovative projects. In my spare time I play piano, build games and consult on a range of projects and like to tinker.
Thanks for stopping by.
