"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." - Albert Einstein

Personal website of Jim Cross

All of us are a sum of many things - our genes, the way we were raised, the people we have met, the places we have been, and the unique experiences we have had.

I have been a software developer since the early 1980's. I have worked in shops with card readers, card punches, and disk drives the size of small freezers. I am still in the field so I have had to change with the times. What strikes me most is how everything old is new again in software development. If you want to see more details about my experience and observations about software development, click on the Software Developer link on the navigation bar.

Most of my current thoughts on the big things of life are on another website - Broad Speculations. Click the link at the left.
