Being a daily publication, there can be drastic changes in readership from one day to the next at The Pot-Luck. Sometimes a post just doesn’t resonate with that many people.

I'm a software developer, working remotely from Richland, WA, working on solving the many issues of managing financial services products on the web. I'm fascinated by the user experience of web sites and applications and read way more than I should. Working on effectively sharing knowledge and ideas has become a recent, but burning, passion.
