Interview with Erwin 2 - The Sequel

We last interviewed Erwin, the man with many hats, 5 1/2 years ago. If you haven't read it lately you should do so before you continue - it's Here. As you can imagine, he's been a busy boy since then, but he agreed to do another interview with us. I really appreciate the time he took to give us such wonderful responses to our questions.

If you have any questions for Erwin post them here, as he indicated he would be willing to answer them.

===============================================

It's hard to believe our first interview with you was well over 5 years ago. Where does the time go?

That's a very good question - where does the time go? I suspect this is both a quantum physics question and a philosophical, existential question. :) Does time even exist? Is it a product of the universe expanding? 5 years sound like a long time, but really, in the scheme of things, is relatively short. But in the internet world, 5 years is a long time. We've seen the birth and growth of some major websites in that time, like Twitter, and we've seen major shifts in the way people use the web. Having said that, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Good, simple web design is still crucial, and usability is paramount for websites. As forum software become more complicated, be careful that your members don't get bogged down with features they don't need.


How have you been?

I have been well. :) Since my last interview, lots have changed. The most important and significant update I can give you is that a month ago, my wife and I had our first child, a daughter. That has meant that, right now, sleep is a privilege, but it also gives me time between feeds and nappy changes, to do some coding in the middle of the night. Otherwise, life is good. God has been good to me and my family.


Please tell us a little more about your wife and daughter.

My wife is a psychiatrist. :) My daughter is the most beautiful person in the world - she is just over a month old now, and already has a fairly strong personality.


What else is new and exciting in your life?

Good questions! I intend to complete my PhD, move into a more academic type of life by doing more teaching, have more babies, and continue in my current career as a specialist medical administrator. From an online point of view, I intend to continue to nurture...

Glad to know Erwin is still doing fine. It's amazing how he manages to do so much with just 24 hours in a day. Looks like his latest enterprise is going to repeat the success of Gaia Online!
