About Me

I work at Red Hat, where I do community stuff with the CentOS project, which is a Linux distribution.

I blog and podcast at, and I use Twitter.

My photos are on Flickr.

I'm a member, former Director, and currently the Vice President of Conferences, of the Apache Software Foundation. I'm somewhat active on the Apache Web Server documentation project. I'm responsible for ApacheCon and Feathercast.

I've written several books, as well as some short stories.

I speak at a lot of conferences.

I hack on various Open Source things.

I occasionally do a podcast called FeatherCast, about the Apache Software Foundation.

I grew up in Kenya, and started the first website, ever, about Kenya, back in 1992. It's gone, but not forgotten.

My wife is an artist. She sells stuff on CafePress and Etsy. You should buy some.
