I'm a UX specialist investigating analysis and design of multi-user interaction. I specialize in design of CLIs and GUIs for use by programmers, QEs, and release engineers.

My doctoral work centered around using discourse analysis techniques to understand design requirements for groupware. I am currently employed helping to design a complex versioning/building/testing system.

In my spare time, I write science fiction; my first novel Duplicate is available as an eBook, paperback, or hardcover. My second novel, We Were Gods is also available as an eBook or paperback. Yes, there's a fair amount of programming and user experience in each of them. ;)

My statements on these websites are not official statements from any employer of mine.

comment How to hang a chair from the ceiling joists (with attic access)
Do you want the chair to swing, or are you thinking it'd be immobile?

comment How to fill the joint between tiles and cabinets in a kitchen backsplash?
I was originally thinking white latex caulk (hence the wet finger). White silicone caulk would definitely last longer, but you will want to slick it with something else--or carefully wipe your finger off afterward.
