Short Story:

nopaper.net is the archived blog of Ryan Stephenson, a web geek R&D-ing for work and play in Saint Louis, MO, USA.

Longer Story:

I’ve maintained a handful of personal sites in years past, but previous content was either unavailable or unworthy for import. This site was set up initially in 2001 for some online prototyping, and adopted a blog and wiki format in 2003 using SnipSnap. In 2006, I simplified the site with WordPress, have hosted it and some friends’ sites on a humble server sitting in my living room, but now share a managed server thanks to a generous friend.

A bit of background for search fodder and identity theft:

  • Computer geek since Dad borrowed a Compaq Portable from work
  • Avid (but never competitive) cyclist since I could ride a bike; my road bike gets far more love than my mountain bike
  • Video gaming since getting an Atari 2600 for rehab after dislocating my thumb playing soccer (I was a bad goalie)
  • Never improved upon my “C” in Handwriting at Pierremont Elementary in Manchester, MO
  • Sang my way through the Class of 1996 at Parkway West High School in Ballwin, MO
  • Graduated Saint Louis University in 2000 with a B.A. in Computer Science and Mathematics
  • Married the lovely Kelly in 2001 after years of crossed paths led to a courtship in the college computer lab. seriously :-)
