Industries I love
What I read
A wide range of tech oriented resources. Most are research related such as Stack Overflow and GitHub. Also community sites related to whatever I'm working on.
I helped my daughter start an education oriented crowdfunding site called Incited.org. It was well accepted, but never profitable. After ~2 years, she closed it down a few months ago. Some vestiges remain:. http://incitedcrowdfundingeducation.tumblr.com/
I prefer small, focused teams. Ideally, I like to either be involved in the specification process or be given a well specified project that I work on independently. I'm prefer management that doesn't mind being questioned. I talk too much in meetings.
