Welcome to my rapidly evolving blog!

It’s dubbed “Crossing the Streams” because I enjoy moving between disciplines and topics, sharing what I find, and blending the results.

(Some say that crossing streams is ill advised, but it is very powerful.)

I’ll be drawing on background in user experience and universal design. I’ve also spent several entrepreneurial years as co-owner of a specialty bookstore in San Francisco, providing a 21st Century web presence to a 1930’s establishment. My current focus is the intersection of social responsibility and technology, including microfinance.

    Hi Ellen-

    I’m excited to see you in the bloggersphere (although you’ve been around for a while in micro-bloggersphere).

    I look forward to learning more about technology, user experience, and microfinance from the perspective of someone with deep knowledge, insight and the heart of an explorer!

    Lucky the reader her spends time here 🙂
