On the presentations I give to schools I describe myself as "economist by training, programmer, technical editor and writer, and woodworker by profession, and energy geek by genetic predisposition."
The economics training was in the form of a bachelor’s degree from King’s College, the software programming and designing work was during a nine-year stretch at IBM, and the technical editing and writing happened at various computer magazines, including Windows Magazine, Linux Magazine, and Dr. Dobb’s Journal, among others.
The energy geekitude came naturally, and has been an obsession ever since I was a kid watching cars sit in gas lines in 1973.

I welcome all e-mail about the site and energy and environmental issues, especially those that teach me something or point out an error I’ve made. But please understand that I’m not always as quick in replying as we’d both like, and sometimes e-mail does get lost in the virtual shuffle. If you don’t get a reply to something that you think deserved one, please feel free to resend it.
