It’s been almost 10 years since I first started blogging. I was studying Information Science at the time and wanted to share my knowledge of usability by applying it in the world of open-source software, specifically KDE.

A couple of usability reports1 that I wrote were picked up by the KDE Usability community, but I was only briefly involved and the blog unfortunately never lasted more than a dozen posts.

Though I continue to find usability to be important, I’m nowadays mostly engaged with Django and front-end web development. I recently watched this talk by Wilson Miner, one of the original developers of Django, and it inspired me to get back into writing again.

While this journal is mainly for myself to keep track of interesting stuff I find on the web, I also plan to share my thoughts and explorations related to web development, programming and technology in general. I hope some of it will be useful for you too.

  1. The usability reports (PDF) are still available: Amarok, Kaffeine and KWord.
