picture of us

About us: is a fairly small organization: Dale, Coral, two cockatiels, two parakeets, and a chinchilla.

Dale's an electrical engineer by training, working as a computer programmer. Coral's also an electrical engineer, but she changed careers and is now a librarian-developer hybrid of some kind.

Thank you for visiting our site! Feel free to explore the rest of and our other homes on the web:
  • Coral's Homepage - Has her blog (mostly library-related, with a healthy dose of technology and crafts), her CV, and an ever-changing list of projects.
  • Dale's Homepage - Has the beginnings of his blog, including probably a continuation of...
  • The Least of All Evils - Dale's external blog about voting methods (our current one isn't good, it turns out).
  • "Moving to Alaska" - Our shared blog (external, also closed now) about our move to AK from the east coast and about life in general.
Our shared e-mail is dale (dot) and (dot) coral (at) sheldon-hess (dot) org; you can also email either of us individually by [firstname] (at) We're on Google Talk and Google Plus if you have comments on our website, or if you just want to chat about engineering, libraries, library school, birds (pet birds, bird behavior, how smart corvids are and how dumb owls are), chinchillas, games, books, bikes, or life in Alaska (we're leaving, but we were there for 5 years).
