I was a wild man from the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Now I’m a quiet root warden in the east of France. I’ve been working with digital content in nearly every respect since the demise of the 20th century. I plan content, produce it, structure it, make it look nice, and govern it over time. I demonstrate this by neglecting my own website.

I stumbled upon (and started using) Textpattern in 2004 after looking for an alternative to WordPress. I’ve never had to look for another web publishing tool since. That same year, I initiated the user documentation wiki to help people like me at the time get over the hump. Now, as Editor of TXP, and with the help of some talented and respectable people, I want to make the magazine a great publication for enthusiasts and seekers of open source content publishing systems.
