Simon Timms hates writing biographies. He would much rather be working on his current book, Evolving ASP.net Applications or encouraging people to read his previous two books. He would also like to be setting up more talks for the Calgary .net User Group where he acts as president and speaks several times a year. There is rumor that instead of writing bios in years gone by he has done development for various companies around Calgary and spent several years running a large build system. While writing this bio he was distracted by an e-mail from the ASP.net/IIS MVP mailing list where he is a first time member. He almost didn’t get back to finishing this bio but he had to wait for a DNS update to blog.simontimms.com where he blogs semi-regularly.
