I once wanted to be a writer. I wanted to write short stories and science fiction. My two writing heros were Roger Zelazny and Ernest Hemingway. I also loved reading nonfiction history. And I wanted to travel.
I went into software QA. I developed a passion for open source software. It’s been a pretty good career move. Now I want to write again. Nothing as glamorous as seeing my name in small print on the cover of sci-fi pulps.
I’d like to write a series of articles, and eventually a book about open source QA tools. Maybe another on open source Project Management tools — if I learn enough about them. Maybe about testing techniques as well, though I don’t think I have the authority to speak on it, and researching existing wisdom doesn’t inspire me.
