I'm Tasman Hayes, a web developer from Sydney, Australia.

I love web development! I find it a great combination of creativity and practicality.

I've been a mad techie for a long time - I've been a programmer for 27 years now.

I'm really excited this year to be writing articles online about my different passions - web development, programming, Linux and Macs.

It's only been three months, so many of my own sites are still very small, and still need to be "pretty-fied".

I write about web development techniques at Smart Web Developer and Big PHP, and I'm starting to write about Linux at S.C. Linux and Ubuntu Gods.

While I work with Linux and Windows every day, I most enjoy working on Macs. My articles about Mac technology and tricks are at Mac Crazy.

One of my hobbies has been seeing how happy I can become! Bizarrely perhaps, over years, it's worked. I'm gathering videos of people I've found useful at Spiritual Talks.

Why am I member at SEO Book? Well, I realized a few years back that the vast majority of websites developed gave little thought to how they'd get traffic. And worse, that most web developers, including myself, didn't know about how to build sites to get traffic.

Since then I've made studying and applying SEO techniques an important part of my work. That's why I'm a member at SEO Book.
