My name is Ross Singer.
Professionally, I am Interoperability and Open Standards Champion at Talis. No, I’m not entirely sure what this means, either. My boss thinks of me as a business analyst of sorts although I write code (preferably in Ruby) most of my day. The things I write are mostly experiments and proofs-of-concept, however, so there may be something to this.
Previously, I was an application developer at Georgia Tech’s library, Emory University libraries and the University of Tennessee libraries. I also worked a shortish stint for internet.com between Tennessee and Emory, but my career has definitely centered primarily around libraries and library technology.
While at Georgia Tech I founded MALTA (the Metro Atlanta Library Technology Association) where like-minded library technology people in the Atlanta area get together and talk about the projects they are working on.
Musically, I play the bass guitar. I also noodle around on guitar.
