After 40 years in the Information Technology industry, I’ve retired and have turned to more leisurely pastimes. My other blog Access-Matters reflects my most recent professional work, enabling web technologies for People With Disabilities. While I’m still very much interested in that field, I’ll be content to sit on the sidelines and watch for now. There’s lots to watch, such as will Target win or lose the lawsuit brought by blind people who have difficulty shopping the Target web site? Will technology continue to evolve quickly enough to make things like the Target lawsuit frivolous and irrelevant? Will the hoards of web developers ever learn anything about accessibility?
When the weather in my boat shop is warm enough, I’ll be building small, human or wind powered boats. When the shop is too cold, I build fine scale models of small boats. Other times, I travel with my best friend and spouse of over four decades. Occasionally, I sit and draw.
Oh, by the way, galoot and neanderthal are endearing terms for woodworkers who prefer using hand tools, especially restored antiques, instead of electrified high powered spinning knives and blades.
