"An editing robot, in the purest John Henry steel drivin' man vs. machine sense; owns a steel-plated, dustproof, top secret Pentagon laptop. Never sleeps. Is polite to nuns ... Joab is all of these things" -- Frankenspock.

This is the Internet Home Page for me, Joab Jackson. This site documents various interesting bits of my life, both professionally and personally. I keep a blog here, a diary to capture shareable moments that I will want -- and need -- to remember later.

This site runs entirely on open source software and open Web standards. Shout-outs go to Apache, MySQL, Perl, Python, PHP, JavaScript and its many awesome libraries, Linux (lately of the CentOS variety), Notepad Plus, The Gimp, Filezilla, Putty, CSS, HTML and a gaggle of other Web standards from the W3C, as well as an untold number of Unix command line tools. Hosting is provided, for now, from DigitalOcean.
