Chris Metcalf

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." - Robert Heinlein

Chris Metcalf is a project manager, software developer, and hobbyist located in Seattle, WA.

Chris is the Director of Product Development and Developer Evangelism for Socrata.

He also races sailboats, takes pictures, and randomly pounds nails into his house.

If he didn't work in technology, Chris' first choice of an alternative career would be as a "fixer". If he was a vegetable, he'd be a carrot. If he was a gardening implement, he'd be that claw thing you use to tear up weeds.
