My name is Stuart. I do strategic thinking and synthesis: pulling
together the web, open source, and product design to make cool
things. I can understand your business, and work with both management and
the dev team. I provide advice and expertise.
I do custom development for the web, mobile, and Ubuntu. I
write code. I have a
blog. I write professionally for websites, magazines, and books.

My published writing.
I’ve written books and technical articles, developer
documentation and specifications. You can get a sample of some of my
published writing on my writing
page. If you’d like me to write for you, contact me for a discussion.
