In what way(s) do you contribute to WebGUI or the WebGUI Community?

I write the documentation and create the videos.  I also take care of the day to day operations for Plain Black thusly freeing up more of JT's time so he can work on WebGUI.

When did you first hear of WebGUI?

Several years ago when JT started creating it.

How and when did you get involved in WebGUI?

I got involved about a year and half ago.  JT asked me to come and work at Plain Black to take some of the load off of him.  The rest is history.

Are you paid to work on WebGUI?

Luckily, yes.

How much time do you spend on WebGUI?

40-45 hours a week.

What do you think is still missing from WebGUI or the WebGUI Community?


Commerce.  I would love for WebGUI's commerce functions to rival that of Amazon and Ebay.

What keeps you motivated to keep working on WebGUI?

It's an amazing piece of software that evolves faster than anything else out there. It always keeps me on my toes making sure I know what's been added.  Plus I'm paid by Plain Black to do it.  Plain Black is such an awsome company to work for I can't imagine working anywhere else...ever.

What's WebGUI's killer feature and why?

How easy it is to create content. With all the assets it has, even novices can create a powerful web site for their users.

What's WebGUI's greatest weakness and why?

Up until 7.0 I would've said the changes were coming too fast and furious.  It was too hard for community and users to keep up with everything.

What makes you work on WebGUI over the competition?

Plain Black

What's your most brilliant WebGUI hack?

I don't hack.

Have you attended the WebGUI User's Conference?

Last year I gave several speaches.

Where do you keep your Gooey doll?

My son has it.

How would you describe yourself? 

A Family man.  I have a wife and 2 kids that I would do anything for, but Plain Black is my second family and I'd do anything for the people there as well.

Are you married, dating, or otherwise involved?


Do you have any kids?

2 kids.

Do you have any pets?

A dog, a cat, 2 fish and a hermit crab.

If someone visits your area, what's something they must see or do?

Stoughton is close to Madison.  They should definitely stop up on the capitol for the farmers market.

What do you love?

My family and gaming of all kinds.

What's the last book you read?

Redemption by Jean Rabe

You're stuck on a train/plane for 6 hours and bored out of your mind, what
do you do to amuse yourself?

Watch the people or read.

Any last words?

I can't wait for the WUC this year.  It's going to be awsome.
