At least if I put something here, I won't keep seeing my name as a red link...

My background

Having programmed machines with paper tape and punched cards (at a very young age!), I'm glad to see things have moved on a little. I gave up programming many years ago, but have been involved in the design and management of pioneering, large-scale websites in the UK's public sector since 1994.

I am a published author and journalist - but (as anyone who's corrected my 'tyops' will tell you) I can't type.

I am a trustee, and webmaster, of the West Midland Bird Club.

Web for all

I believe strongly in adherence to web standards, making web pages as accessible as possible, to everyone, and that it's important to communicate using the simplest language necessary, to convey ideas clearly. Hence my proposal for a brief description of microformats.

My microformats interests

I am the proponent of:

and have reactivated the previously-proposed:

Other pages I have created:

I have published microformats on:

Browsing

I usually surf with whatever is the latest formal release of FireFox, using far too many extensions (including Tails Export), under Windows XP, on a 20" or 17" monitor at 1280x1024 resolution.

I use Firefox's live bookmarks and the Sage extension, to view hAtom feeds.

Overall

...I'd rather be out bird-watching.
