Transformative Explications is a blog that explores my thoughts on literature and creative writing as well as, periodically, observations on technology, open source software, and more.

Transformative Explications brings together my technology blogging from my RandM Thoughts blog, and my thoughts on literature and creative writing from an earlier incarnation of Transformative Explications (I liked the name so I kept it for this version). All of the posts from both blogs have now migrated and merged into this single (new) blog.

  • Technology and Open Source Software

Between 2006 and 2013, I blogged at RandM Thoughts on technology and open source software, the latter spurred on by my time working with OSS Watch, the UK national advisory service on free and open source software for further and higher education.

  • Creative Writing

Between 2009 and 2013, I blogged about fiction, creative writing, and related concerns at Transformative Explications. More recently I included selected book reviews that I also post on LibraryThing.
