I predict the day when one will make federated wiki sites with the same frequency we now make documents. Its just too easy. Here are some sites that I've made, mostly to test out this and other ideas.

Bayside Park, Wisconsin

It wasn't always easy to get home from Chicago. One time when flights were backed up over 24 hours I rented a Subaru Outback thinking that I might drive it to Oregon but instead drove it north looking for rough roads. This photo was taken at the Bayside Park where I finally turned around and headed back south.

I have a long history with ThoughtWorks going back to Atlas, their first big Java project. I helped them understand both Agile and Open Source. Now they help me understand how big both can be in an enterprise setting.

I wrote Federated Wiki while I served as Nike's open-data fellow. I currently work for NewRelic in Portland, Oregon.

My regular bio also notes that I co-founded the consultancy, Cunningham & Cunningham, Inc., served as CTO of CitizenGlobal and AboutUs, as Director of the Eclipse Foundation, an Architect in Microsoft's Patterns & Practices Group, the Director of R&D at Wyatt Software and as Principle Engineer in the Tektronix Computer Research Laboratory.
