About John Watson
I’m one of the John Watsons on the first page of Google when you search for John Watson but not one of the famous ones. The famous ones are: the John Watson who writes and reviews chess books and the John Watson (bad father) who invented the behaviorism branch of psychology. I’m also not the John Watson who is the senator of Tasmania or John Watson Chevrolet of Ogden, Utah.
I’m John Watson the dad and this is my personal blog.
I build web sites (one of my best known is fd’s Flickr Toys). I’m a professional software developer and I’ve been doing that since 1994, although I’ve been programming computers as a hobby since I was about 10. I’m a freelancer and work from home.
I also talk about my kids a lot. I have two, a girl and a boy. The girl is affectionately referred to here as The Girl or Sister or My Daughter. Similarly for The Boy. I am lucky enough to also have a Lovely and Talented Wife. Like my son, I’m easily distracted by shiny objects. I love them all.
