My name is Nigel Brown, and I live on the east coast of the UK, close to the market town of Woodbridge, and a short journey from London.

Having been involved with proprietary software for numerous years, I am a convert to the open source paradigm, and have become a huge fan. It's refreshingly honest, inspirationally innovative, and wonderfully inclusive.

This blog is about open source software, and provides personal comment, as well as technical insight for those that don't have the time or means to get to grips with some of the software emerging from the open source community.

I have been in the IT industry for numerous years; I've coded, been a SysAdmin, a consultant, and more latterly an owner and director of a consulting business. I'm back at my technical roots, and enjoying the opportunity to explore emerging technologies.
