AboutI am employed as the manager of a software engineering team at Stanford University Library. I write open source software, and I spend a lot of time on Free and Open Source Software projects like Project Blacklight and Project Hydra. I am the same Bess Sadler who used to perform music in North Carolina, but not the same Bess Sadler who is a newspaper reporter. I am @eosadler on twitter. The opinions expressed in this blog are my own, not my employer’s.
Solvitur ambulando: Literally translated it means “it is solved by walking.” Generally it is interpreted as “the problem is solved by a practical experiment” or else “learn by experience.” That’s how I tend to work and how I tend to learn. Origin: “Diogenes of Sinope, also known as “Diogenes the Cynic,” is said to have replied to the argument that motion is unreal by standing up and walking away.

If you are looking for Bess and Harmony music, sorry, I don’t have a copy of the album. This is very embarrassing for a librarian to admit. Harmony has the studio tapes and we are trying to figure out how to get them digitized and released online. You can find Harmony Keeney’s current creative projects here: http://harmonysings.com
