Hi, I’m Jim Barr, and this is one of my little corners of the Internet-–my sandbox and playground for all things Web Development. I’m a technology geek, and I love riding on the bleeding edge of technology. I love exploring new gadgets, services, Web sites, programs, and anything technically interesting! I develop and managed several small client Web sites, so if you are interested in discussing a small project, let me know!
My journey began with a large layoff at the company I worked for. I was rooted in the Chicago area, but an opportunity for a change soon came. After a few weeks of discussion, some deep contemplation, and a leap of faith, I secured a new job in Anderson, South Carolina! Anderson is certainly a change from the Chicago area, and I’ll miss my colleagues and friends, but we must all at some point move on.
…to the farm
10 years later, my wife and I had the wonderful opportunity to purchase pasture land in Iva, SC, just 30 minutes from Anderson. We had a modular home built, and now enjoy farm (pasture) life. Cattle graze on our 17.5 acre pasture, helping to further the local cattle-producing farm community. We continue to work in Anderson.
