    Me With A Coat And HatSo you’ve somehow stumbled upon my little corner of the Internet. I hold no delusions that anybody besides me actually cares about my opinions, rantings, and thoughts. I dump my brain here for many of the same reasons Steve Maine blogs. I suppose that’s not really all that unexpected, since he is the one who got me into this whole practice in the first place. I think the only place where he and I differ is that I don’t blog in the laundromat.

    So about what do I write? Anything that comes to mind. I work and play in the technology field, in both .NET and Java, so that is a common topic. I work for Apple, makers of some cool hardware and software, but don’t expect to hear much from me about my work there. Prior to Apple, I worked for the Library of Congress for nearly seven years. I also think about lots of other things, and I spend a lot of time doing many different things. I’ll write about those, too. Feel free to ignore what I’m talking about. I categorize my ramblings to help make it a bit easier.

    Cast of Characters

    • Brian – That’s me! I’m a computer geek. I like to read, play games, drink whisky, and watch the Cubs. I formerly served as an Advisory Neighborhood Comissioner in the District. I currently live on the northern end of Columbia Heights, near by the Red Derby.
    • Ryan – My best friend since before we both remember. Founding member of #highlanderz, game nerd like myself, and an Irishman with the weakest liver you’ve ever seen.
    • Heather – My  ex-wife. We were married in 2003 and divorced in 2013.
