Learn more about me and this website.


I am deeply curious about the creation, processing, and exchange of information, easily and securely.

To this end, I spend a great deal of time working at, thinking about, and discussing the intersection of people, process, and technology.

Over the course of my career, I have worked on teams to develop, deploy, and support a diverse constellation of systems and services in support of the unique missions of some of the largest and most respected organizations in the world.

I love puzzles...

All my life, I've been obsessed with how things work.

Or, as my grandmother likes to tell people, "Brian plays with puzzles for a living." She thinks that's pretty neat. I do too.

...and open things.

I make a point to use open things whenever possible. As a dear friend of mine is known to say: "it is always possible"

This Site is the personal website of Brian Warnecke, powered by HTML 5 and CSS (served by the Apache HTTP Server on GNU/Linux, hosted in AWS) and love.

This site is designed to last

In his 2019 lamentation on link rot and the ever increasing complexity of keeping indie web content alive, HCI researcher Jeff Huang proposed seven "unconventional guidelines" to ensure websites are easy to maintain and preserve.

I'm proud that this latest iteration of meets all seven guidelines at launch in March, 2024.
