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.

reviewed Approve Significant amount of the time, I can't think of a reason to have an object instead of a static class. Do objects have more benefits than I think?

comment How to data model more than one 'last name'?
Why do you need to know "last name" or "first name"? That way lies madness (see utnapistim's link below).
