About: I'm Jen. I live a few miles outside of Boston. I do web work for a non-profit during the day.
This web page has been in all sorts of forms since 1994 when I first wrote HTML in emacs on a Unix terminal at BU. Now I prefer BBEdit on my Mac. I'm never quite sure why I'm doing this

Back to School
Just ordered on Amazon:
For Introduction to Strategic Information Management and Social Informatics, the two classes I'll take this semester.
First, some relaxing over Labor Day and then I'll dive in.

This image is one of the first things I ever remember seeing on television. I was almost 4 1/2 years old and I vividly remember being in the den watching Elvis' funeral procession with my parents.

Opposing sides (Civil War)
My 3rd great grandfather on my mother's side, Felix M. Drais, served in the Union Regular Army, 12th Regiment, Company A out of Ohio. He was shot during the Battle of Gettysburg and laid on the battlefield for over two weeks with holes in both legs.
Just discovered that my 4th great grandfather on my father's side, Jefferson J. McNeely, served in Capt. W.W. Griffin’s Co., Coosa County Reserves based out of Alabama. He was a prisoner of war, paroled by Breyt. Brig. Genl. M. H. Chrysler on May 24, 1865 at Talladega, Alabama.
Interesting to have people on both sides, but I guess I always knew I did seeing as my Southern side of the family is still in the same town where JJ McNeely was paroled over 140 yrs later.
