I am a senior researcher at the University of Maine's Still Water network art and culture lab. One of our primary interests is in developing ways to apply open source ideas and methodology to problems in other domains, resulting in projects like The Pool (OSS-style project development system for non-software projects), the Variable Media Questionnaire 3.0 (framework for preserving art based on object-oriented architecture) and Thoughtmesh (distributed publishing platform for academic writing). In addition, I am part of a group developing a new Innovative Communication Design program to be taught at UMaine.
Skills: My background is in programming, new media, intermedia art, databases and web design (LAMP+JS)
I am familiar with a number of online communication tools and would be comfortable using most any of them.
