random notes on a geek

photos of me

 

I'm a geek, but not really a technical geek, more of creative one who knows tech. I can write Perl, but I wouldn't consider myself a programmer. I've built a computer from individual components, but I don't memorize details on hardware and always forget the differences between AT and ATX. I've worked in tech support, but I've met hundreds of people who are better on the tech side than I am.

This explains why I occasionally rant about how things should be simpler. I've helped friends and relatives set up computers before, use digital cameras or video capture, edit audio... and computers are ridiculously harder to use than they actually need to be. Apparently, no one thinks about how people will actually use these things.

Oh, wait. I guess so far, this page hasn't been about me very much, has it?
