Dusty Cloud Brainstorms: Don't mind the mess

My name is Christopher Allan Webber. Welcome to my humble home. I'm not very good at hospitality, but help yourself to whatever's in the pantry. Would you like a cup of honeybush tea? There was some green tea in there too but I don't know where I put it.

I do quite a bit of artwork, I keep a blog (well kind of), and much more frequently I microblog. I am most happy in life when I am being creative.

Aside from writing, I do a fair amount of coding, even outside of work. Most of the code I write is written in Python, my language of choice (though I enjoy quite a few other languages as well).

I guess if you're here you might be interested in knowing a bit about me. I'm a native of Milwaukee but I currently live in Madison, WI. I work fulltime on my free software project GNU MediaGoblin... it's pretty cool, check it out! Previously I worked as as a software engineer at Creative Commons. I used to do a bunch of other things, but I have decided having a long list on the front page of my site was rather silly. I am married to Morgan Lemmer-Webber, who has been the most wonderful and loving partner I could ever imagine. I still don't know how she manages to put up with me.

I am an avid supporter of both Free Software and Free Culture. I run GNU/Linux exclusively, both at home and at work. My favorite applications are Emacs, Blender, and the GIMP. I run GNOME as my desktop because it is usable, though sometimes I wish it was more configurable.

Socially, I'm a bit odd. I don't like large parties or loud organizations of people I don't know. I do, however, enjoy dialogue, and if you think you'd enjoy meeting up for a cup of coffee or tea, and you're in the Madison area, contact me.
