This is my brain on php

Welcome to the Machine
Making the web a smarter place, one site at a time.
This is the headquarters for all things Joel. Mainly it's just an easier way for people to find me.

You may recognize me from such web pages as, CarTalk interviews BostonSweeper's Joel Gwynn, The World's Best Currency Converter, and The Commuter Rail Real Estate Map.

As you can see from the picture, there's a lot of stuff going on between my ears. My background is in Linux web development (HTML/Javascript/Perl/PHP/MySQL) by way of 3D Modeling and Rendering (AutoCAD/3D-Studio/Photoshop) by way of Architecture by way of MIT.

Of course, nobody actually reads anything anymore, but if you've read this far, I'll tell you that I live in US::MA::Somerville with my wife Carrie, and two cats. When I'm not working feverishly on some crackpot idea, I like to ski and play pool.
