Stuff I've done, have been doing, and technical hints I've accumulated along the way
Zope/Plone
I work with (and on) a web application server, Zope, and a content management platform built on top if Zope, named Plone. I sometimes am involved in the development of features and fixes that i need.
My Mailman Role
My Role in the Development of Mailman, the GNU Mailing List Manager
Emacs Allout
Allout is an outlining extension, for the Emacs programming editor, that I created and continue to develop. Allout has been included as part of the official Emacs distribution since 1993.
Zope Bug Trackers
a mainstay for development collaboration, i built the Zope Collector and it was used for at least 6 years as the bug collector for numerous Zope community and corporate projects.
Organizable Wiki
One technique for organizing a wiki as it grows, organically.
Crafty Hacks
Tools, techniques, and gimmicks I developed along the way that have been useful way beyond their development effort.

PyCon 2003 "Debugging Zope" Paper
The paper, Conversing With Zope: Interactive Debugging Using the Python Prompt, which I wrote and delivered at the Python 2003 conference. This is an incomplete copy of the master I made available via my zope.org account. The old zope.org is being deprecated, and will eventually disappear along with the master copy.
