Welcome

I do writing projects on web design and open source tools, and am always looking for more. I helped out, a lot, with drafting, editing, and updating the contextual help tabs for WordPress versions 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, and 3.3. Contact me by email: Dougwrites (at) aya.yale.edu

What do I write about? Technology, using software, training and education, new media, visual design, how-to guides, explaining to make a difference, travel, cities. I value:

  • Clear, extensive, direct, and engaging writing
  • Help that actually helps answer questions, writing as a craft, problem-solving
  • Contributions which are creative, flexible, thorough, and well-planned
  • Writing thoughtfully because good writing always matters

Software tools skills: I work with WordPress, Firefox Extended, Chrome, Open Office Writer, Notepad++, Tortoise SVN, Word, Visio, Dreamweaver, GIMP, Snagit, Filezilla, and am learning PHP, CSS, Inkscape, Atlassian Confluence, Windows Live Writer, and Madcap Flare. I’m also looking for good open source options for screencasting and a basic XML writer to use with DITA.

Theme:  Twenty Ten! (and waiting to see what Twenty Twelve looks like in 3.4)
