I believe every human being is capable of making good judgments. I believe that leveraging that ability is the only hope we have to create a future we can all live with.
I am passionate about open source software development, free licenses, wiki-based communities, Wikipedia, and bold experiments in open and transparent self-governance.
I believe treading lightly is an essential component of getting our economy back on track, and protecting the natural resources that support life. I try to ride my bicycle instead of driving, minimize my meat consumption, and adapt to somewhat uncomfortable temperatures rather than immediately turning to heat or air conditioning.
