I'm a lot of places. It seems that every community wants you to play in their sandbox... it's so backwards. If you're looking for insight, your best bet is to follow me on our corporate blog. I'm one of many posters.
Here's the official bio:
Before founding Single-Sourcing Solutions, Liz worked in both high-tech and government sectors, developing and delivering technical design and strategy of authoring and publishing solutions as a Single-Source/XML Architect/Programmer. For over a decade, she has architected and implemented the single-sourcing systems for government and high tech companies. Specializing in practical development and deployment, she is a strong advocate of designing architectures that directly improve organizational efficiency, productivity, and interoperability.
She presents regularly at industry and vendor conferences and is very active in the software engineering user communities: SF Bay ACM council member, SF Bay Arbortext PTC/User group charter member, and host of both a blog and a podcast that focus on strategies, skills, and resources for the user community.
She holds degrees in Computer Science and English from the University of College Park and a Masters in English from the University of Southern Mississippi.
Here's the real scoop:
My team says that I build clubhouses. I keep trying to find new ways to share information and strengthen the ecosystem of professionals around me. This means that I give back. I've been a volunteer/officer for the Association for Computing Machinery since 1998. I've volunteered for Society of Women Engineers at various events over the years. I started the Arbortext PTC/User group and continute to donate resources and logistics to help it flourish. My dedication to growing the community is so strong that it's carried over into the way Single-Sourcing Solutions does business. Each one of our team members is active in one or more on-line user communities and it is expected that each one devote a portion of their on-the-job time to helping people find answers to problems.
I said I'm a gardener and I am. I'm happiest when those around me are flourishing.
