About

My name is Ian Dunn and I created this blog to cover information related to my professional life as a web developer. It contains solutions to problems I’ve run into and may need again in the future, rants on web standards and best practices and any other random thing I feel like sharing.

I live in Seattle and work on the Dot Org team at Automattic*, where I build custom WordPress plugins and themes to support WordCamp.org, WordPress.tv and the WordPress.org network.

I’m a big fan of web standards and the open source movement, and I have a perfectionist streak that lends itself towards obsessing over best practices. In addition to my work at Automattic, I also maintain a few open source WordPress plugins and miscellaneous projects.

Before joining Automattic, I did a lot of client work as a developer, and also a decent amount of systems- and network administration.
