Seth Wegher-Thompson Bio

I tried to design RCD to be a tool that everyone can use. If I have been successful, I will become increasingly irrelevant to the life cycle of RCD. Nevertheless, If I were reading this I would want to know about the author before responding.  So here is a little bit to introduce myself.

“Merely having an open mind is nothing. The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid.”

- GK Chesterton. (hat tip Goodreads.com)

This Chesterton quote helps describe me. I am a person who has been on either side, neither side, and danced like a fool on the top edge of many religious, social and political fences.  I commit fully to my beliefs and opinions yet I also change my belief when I recognize an error or a clearer understanding.  I am always trying to believe whenever I can, but I also acknowledge whatever I can't believe.  And I respect others who can't believe what I believe.

If you contribute to this project I will count on you to point out if my personal belief or bias creeps in. I am trying to create a system that has as little individual bias as possible.
