I love / hate the ESRI ArcGIS suite of programs. I am working to become more of a programmer, because if anything takes you longer than a hour to do manually, create a program to do it quicker. Currently I am an expert in Python, HTML and XML. I'm currently trying my best to learn VB.net and C++, but it's going slow.
Building my own little corner of the web at: Bizrown.com. It's a work in progress, but I envision it being my web portfolio and a cool resource for web GIS.
