This is David Bennett’s professional blog. One of my New Year’s resolutions was to post at least once a week. Let’s see how we do.

This is not intended to be personal or a daily journal. Here I write about software, business, investing and other things I am interested in and spend time on.

The blog name reflects my outlook on life: a sceptical optimist. Everything will probably turn out OK in the end, but nowhere near as good as the salesman would have you believe. Most people are basically good, but if they say they want to help you they probably thought about their interests before they thought about yours.

I have another blog where I write about my recreational interests, at www.hurkle.com. My personal resume/brochure site is www.davidmbennett.com.

Anything on this site can be quoted provided the source is acknowledged. Feel free to comment or email me if there is anything interesting here: david at this domain will reach me.
