I'm Peter Saint-Andre, a.k.a. stpeter.
I'm a technologist, having worked on Internet infrastructure and applications since 1996, with a focus on open standards and open-source software for communications and security. These days I work on the Firefox team at Mozilla.
I'm a philosopher, having written Songs of Zarathustra, The Upland Farm, Letters on Happiness, The Tao of Roark, Randian Reflections, Ancient Fire, and The Ism Book. Currently I'm translating the ethical fragments of Epicurus, writing an epitome of Aristotle's ethics, and researching a philosophical murder mystery about Pyrrho and Alexander the Great.
I'm a musician, having composed a folk-rock song cycle, three suites and a set of variations for classical guitar, a musical setting of Freedom's Plow by Langston Hughes, and arrangements of music by Yes for solo bass guitar. Right now I'm focused on practicing some of my favorite songs by Bob Dylan.
My online journal is updated regularly and my old homepage is here. Everything I work on is placed into the public domain and available under source control. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to have a conversation.
