About the author

My name is Morgan Roderick, I write this blog.

As you might have guessed from reading some of the posts on the blog, I am a software engineer, specialising in web development. I’ve been building just about every type of web property professionally since 1998.

I believe I wrote my first webpage in 1994, the same year I got my first e-mail address. The webpage displayed photos taken by the Hubble telescope, and as far as I know, that page was only ever viewed in Mosaic on SGI Indy machines.

Ever since that time, I’ve been fascinated with the web and what we can do with it.
