where is john?

Still happily living in Salem, Oregon.

what is john up to these days?

As of today, I am happily working for Opentrons, leading a team of software developers working on the laboratory information management system powering PRL.NYC. I've been working on this project as a contractor for a few months now, and am really looking forward to joining the team full time.

Still continuing to pretend like I regularly blog at
