I've also served on a number of other town committees. I ran an independent Green Ashland Initiative Alliance prior to the forming of the Sustainability Committee (on which I also served), and worked to gain Green Community status for Ashland. I'm currently on the Upper Charles Trail Committee, working to build Ashland's portion of a 30-mile bike and walking trail. I also serve as the chair of the Comprehensive Plan Advisory Group, working to produce Ashland's next 10-year master plan.
We have been foster parents for several children though DCF. It's an incredibly rewarding experience. Due to privacy rules, I can't say much about the wonderful kids we've had. If you have time and love to share, I highly recommend you consider fostering.
Remember when everyone had their own home pages like this one? I used to link to all my friends here, but now that's mostly moved to Facebook. Perhaps a bit less fun, but a lot more universal.
I've started a technology blog, Mad Man with a Compiler. Mostly it's posts about C programming, Linux tweaks, and Bash scripting.
I love bicycling, especially with the Ashland Bike Club. The summer after I graduated from college I bicycled across the country from San Francisco to Delaware with Wandering Wheels, and now I can often be found biking to work in Hopkinton when weather permits.
I never outgrew playing with LEGOs ("LEGO(r) bricks" if you're being pedantic). I put together a page with some of my creations from when I had more time: PC's Empire. I found a group of other like-minded adults in the New England LEGO Users' Group (NELUG). Someday I'll let Mason play with my collection.
I am a member of the Presbyterian Church in Sudbury, where I am a volunteer youth leader with the high school youth group. This summer, we went on a mission trip to The Philippines. We now sponsor a child through Little Children of the Philippines.
