I'm Peter Saint-Andre, a.k.a. stpeter.

I'm a technologist, working on the Internet of Things at Filament. I've defined numerous industry standards at the IETF and the XSF, and I also run the jabber.org IM service and the IM Observatory.

I'm a writer on philosophical topics, having authored The Tao of Roark, an Epicurean dialogue on happiness, a dictionary of philosophy, and a collection of philosophical poems. Short books on Thoreau, Aristotle, Nietzsche, and eventually Lao Tzu are on the way.

I'm a musician, having composed a folk-rock song cycle, three suites and a theme-and-variations for classical guitar, a musical setting of the Langston Hughes poem Freedom's Plow, and arrangements of music by Yes for solo electric bass.

My online journal is updated regularly. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to have a conversation.
