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'm on the Firefox team at Mozilla.
I'm a philosopher, having written books about Nietzsche, Thoreau, Epicurus, and Rand. Currently I'm working on an epitome of Aristotle's views on human flourishing and a dialectical method for philosophical coaching.
I'm a musician, having composed a folk-rock song cycle, extended pieces for solo guitar, a musical setting of the Langston Hughes poem Freedom's Plow, and arrangements of music by Yes for solo electric bass. Currently I'm transcribing the Bach Cello Suites for bass.
My online journal is updated regularly. Everything I work on is placed into the public domain and available under source control. I also republish judiciously selected public domain texts via the Monadnock Valley Press. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to have a conversation.
