Bio/Description

WordPress is butter. It’s also gold. So it’s butter and gold.

Old. I do PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, yadda-yadda. Been at it for a decade and a half and still love it. For fun I host Social Media Edge Radio since August 2008. You can listen and join in at http://socialmediaedge.com because we’d love to have you.

Interests

Homebrew. Wine.Go Army. Cheese. Fuller Brushes. Gardening. Writing. Guns. Ghosts. Guitar. Drums. Photos. No peanut butter please.

WordPress Origin Story

Oh my. Well, I developed a “blog engine” in perl and JavaScript back in 1997 exclusively for an international religious organization. It was more of a membership exchange but allowed profiles, internal “email”, posting with replies. It was modeled after AOL/Prodigy as they were in the late 80s and early 90s. Later some other options emerged, most notably for me was Geeklog, and eventually I got into B2cafelog – I followed with B2Evolution at first then added WP to what I was following, recommending, and using. I have no idea how many WP sites I have set up, modified, hacked, and completely destroyed for clients and self.
