Questions, speaking requests, corrections, or other inquiries?

Please note that I am not interested in offers for SEO, outsourced development, nor linking to content that is only tangentially related to my own. As a general rule, posts on this blog are only updated to correct inaccurate information; if new information is brought to light, I may choose to write a follow-up article, but this is done at my own discretion. Furthermore, I am not looking for guest authors, sponsored posts, nor ghostwritten content for this site.

That being said, if you’re looking to email me directly you can do so via

I saw you linked to {article}, would you be interested in linking to mine, too?

Please re-read the section above, as I’m still getting one or two of these emails each week. No, thank you.

How much would it cost to have you host (or link to) this article? I think your readers would really benefit from it!

Please re-read the sections above until you reach this point again. If you’re still looking for a number…let’s say USD $1.6M minimum, with that number subject to change based on the quality and subject matter of the content.

If these terms are agreeable, please feel free to email for consideration.

Would you be interested in speaking at my conference or user group?

I’m always on the lookout for new speaking opportunities (including podcasts), especially around tooling, development workflows, and open-source software. My speaking page has details (and some recordings) of past presentations, as well as upcoming engagements.


If you’ve benefited from my writing, speaking, or open source contributions and would like to give back (and/or support ongoing efforts), you may do so via PayPal or Venmo.

If you would like to support a organizations more deserving, gifts to the ACLU, Open Sourcing Mental Illness, and/or the Mid-Ohio Foodbank would be wonderful as well.

Be excellent to each other.
