This is the personal web site of John P. Reardon (a.k.a J.P. Reardon), that’s me. I am a user experience designer, technologist, generalist and dabbler in several hobbies. Most of these pursuits take place in and around New York City where I spend a fair amount of my time and happen to reside. If you peruse the site, you will find a lot of random posts. If you pay attention to the dates, you may see that there are sometimes long, long periods of inactivity. This isn’t because I don’t love you–my viewing audience, all two of you–it is because at times, I have little to say (of interest anyway*).
This site was born in 2003. Since then, I have probably found it to be more useful than anyone else. I frequently search through the archives for something that I know I wrote about. For that reason alone, its worth having a blog. If you don’t already have one, you should get one going–it’s free!
Big thanks to the fine people that maintain WordPress, Takayuki Miyoshi for the Contact Form 7 plugin and Matthias Pfefferle for the SemPress Theme.
