Hi folks, I'm William (Bill) Stewart, founder and current SysOp for this Wiki. I'm also architect of Cirrus Open, integrating the best open source into a FOSS complete Intranet from system to apps, accessible on virtual desktops, and founder of a hosting company for Cirrus Open, Cirrus Computing.
I wrote the "first Web published book" Living Internet, and the open source Deeply Practical Project Management reference. My open source software for convex hulls in multiple dimensions, electoral proportional representation, fuzzy logic linear programming, search trees, and website navigation is collected here. I was an individual member with the Open Source Development Lab (OSDL), later merged with the Linux Foundation. I maintain the organizational best practices collection The Fun Standard.
I learned system integration working for a series of merging aerospace companies, where I served variously as a system architect, security architect, system engineer, software manager, system engineering manager, engineering lead, and project manager, on a range of efforts from vehicular to health information systems integration. Before that, I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from UNB for a thesis on construction of multi-dimensional convex hulls from spherical distributions in optimum space and time. My first real job was for the Canadian Public Service, to setup and manage a computing center for a 4,500 person enterprise using DEC PDP-11 computers.
