My greatest weakness, is that, too often, I am all things to all people: it's never the general case that fails; it's always when I do too much too fast that the gaps show up.

I don't settle. I read a 600-page reference to get a 'rudimentary' understanding; I've read Information Architecture for the World Wide Web 4 times, ... before I bought it.  I know many scripting languages: ruby, python, bash, and javascript, to name a few, though I eschew perl. I like books because they are often thorough, even exhaustive, but to the point: they can be consumed quickly.

I learn fast.  I've taken work I didn't think I could handle, and built robust maintainable code at short notice, so give me a challenge: it's what I most enjoy.
