About the Site
Burningbird and its earlier incarnations (YASD, Dynamic Earth, etc.) have been online since 1996. The site features writings about politics, the environment, agriculture, government, open document systems, data, and technology.
I no longer maintain a static copy of all my past websites, since the Internet Archive does such a splendid job at the Wayback Machine. Instead, I give the Internet Archive an annual donation and strongly recommend you do so, also.
About the Network
I now maintain only two domains: Burningbird, and Shelley’s Toy Box , which is All tech, all the time
Simple. Technology at Shelley’s Toy Box, everything else here.
About the Author
I’m a software engineer/developer/architect/data geek with thirty years of experience. I have degrees in psychology as well as computer science. I was pre-law before switching to computers, hence my interest in legal cases. I worked for organizations as diverse as Boeing, Nike, Intel, John Hancock, Weyerhauser, Sierra Geophysics, HP, and Multnomah County in Oregon.
I’m also a writer. I’m interested in a variety of subjects—the environment and climate, environmental law, animal welfare, sustainable agriculture and food safety, open documents, politics and the government, and, of course, technology.
