I am a 40-something college professor who teaches in the field of Digital Entertainment and mobile device development (iPhone, iPad, Andorid, Blackberry, etc). What does that mean? Well, it means that I get to play with the cool toys! I have over 25 years of experience as a programmer/techie, and over 15 years experience as a secondary school teacher and university professor.
What can you expect to find here? Wherever my interests take me, that is what you will find on my website. For now, that encompasses my research, publications, my blogs on developing for Android, iPad/iPhone, and Microsoft Mobile programming, Word Press, and Flash CS5 game development (to name a few). In the future, heirloom gardening, remodeling, travel, reflections on digital entertainment, book reviews… The future is wide open!
I welcome your comments and feedback. If you are part of the grammar/spelling police, keep it to yourself. I have dyslexia. While I do my best to check my spelling and grammar, I am more focused on content than following all of the rules perfectly. If my spelling and grammar is just too much for you to tolerate, may I recommend that you create your own website?
For the record, I do sometimes receive free books and merchandise that I review. I do my best to make sure that the fact that I received it for free does not influence my review. If I’m going to recommend something, it will be because I liked the product, not because I received a free copy. I’ve received enough junk so as to not be persuaded by getting something for free. I am a member of several affiliate programs, so I do receive a commission from some of the links on my site. Again, I only plug things that I like. I have enough personal integrity to not sell my name for a few dollars of profit. If I was in it for the money, do you think I would be in education?
