My name is Mark Atwood, and I commonly use the username/nickname "fallenpegasus". The story behind that handle is old, long, and uninteresting.
I like to learn interesting stuff, and to meet interesting people, and then to introduce them to each other. I am an introverted people watcher, yet I enjoy public speaking. I am a professional open-source and open-standards advocate, which means that I travel a great deal to speak at and "hallway track" technical conferences.
I work for Hewlett-Packard as the Director of Open Source Engagement, with focus on OpenStack and the HP Cloud Services.
I live in the grey and green city of Seattle.
I drink red wine, dark beer, and green tea.
