Steve Rainwater

I'm interested in all kinds of stuff as you can see from my interests section below. Rather than try to write a comprehensive bio here, how about if I just link to all my genre-specific bios and profiles on other sites?

ToDo List

I don't frequent DMS anymore and it looks like someone has removed the Twitter, Youtube, and Flickr plugins from Mediawiki, breaking most of the pages I created here about my DMS projects. Not surprisingly, I no longer have admin access here anymore, so there's nothing I can do to fix the wiki. Over time I plan to remove my pages here and move the content to my own website where I can restore the photos and video.

I also need to write up a more complete history of DMS starting with the work Ed and I did and progressing to the DPRG's makerspace committee work. The DPRG preserved my original Makerspace article here [1] and later edited together some of my email responses to questions about DMS history here [2]
