Hackin’ and jammin’ on the Infotainment Stupor Hype Wait ®

Hi. You’ve reached my very own vanity site, where I wax poetic about all kinds of useless stuff. My blog is where I blather on even more.

Until 2017, I was the project leader of Mailman, the GNU Mailing List Manager. I work on Python, and I used to be lead maintainer for Jython. I contribute to many other open source projects. My day job is at LinkedIn. I’m a working semi-pro musician and I’ve been playing Tai Chi (Yang style short form, sword, and sensing hands) since 2002.


Second Annual Winner of the Antonio Pizzigati Prize for Software in the Public Interest. I was given this prize for my work on GNU Mailman.

In 2014, I was awarded the Frank Willison Memorial Award by the Python Software /Foundation. I knew Frank, and this is truly an honor.
