Ken Mayer

San Francisco Bay Area


I am a serial technologist, agile cheerleader and open source advocate. I am also a sporadic blogger; an unpredictable tweeter; a recovering SCUBA instructor; an erstwhile master of vessels steam and sail; but most of all; a devoted husband and father. My sons thinks I’m cooler than anything, although as they get older, there’s less cool and more chill. Dad jokes are my curse. I’m an incorrigible punster; family, friends and business colleagues beg you not to incorrige me. I occasionally suffer from foot in mouth disease, but welcome any help with the extraction. Googling myself leads to diverting references to people other than myself.
