==My background==
I no longer edit here. I'm off on a ''voyage''...
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 live in [[Birmingham (England)]] and am a trustee, and webmaster, of the [ West Midland Bird Club], covering [[Staffordshire]], [[Warwickshire]], [[Worcestershire]] and [[West Midlands (county)|the West Midlands county]].
==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. I'm very interested in [Microformats].
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.
