Nedscape 2009

A quick introduction.

I'm a longtime technology geek, CEO of an open source software company. This blog won't be about that, although if you're in the market for accounting, ERP, and CRM software, you should give it a look. I also have an irregular blog that snarkily tracks M&A activity in the ERP software space, called The ERP Graveyard.

In 1996, a couple of years after turning down a job at a scrappy young company called America Online (thought I'd hold out for more money - stock, schmock!), I had the presence of mind to register the domain name before any of the other Neds on the Internet got around to it.

Even then, my priorities were unassailable.

It's been years since I've done anything with the website, but I hold on to it for old times sake.

Back in the day, I had pages goofing on onetime Internet darling Netscape (circa '96, '97, '98, '99), Red Hat, c|net, Napster, Network Solutions, and I think the last update was somewhere around 2002 with an Enron-themed wrapup that had sort of a greatest-hits quality to it.

As you might gather from some of those links, I'm also a political conservative. I'll answer to "neanderthal" if the question is phrased politely, but I'm generally more interested in economic and foreign policy than having the government try to regulate individual behavior. Needless to say, I think the current administration is heading for the cliff's edge on all three counts.

More on that later.
