About Glen

Glen HortonI'm Glen. I spent my childhood in Chicago, but I've spent most of my life in SouthWest Ohio. I currently live in Cincinnati with my family and two four hungry cats.

Over the past few years I've made lots of big changes to live a more meaningful and less stressful life. I now consider myself a recovering perfectionist. I've also embraced minimalism so I can focus on the things that matter in my life and simplify as much as possible (like this simple website). That means owning less, doing less, and worrying less. It's a work in progress.

What am I up to now? (updated 3/22/19)

I'm passionate about libraries and free access to information. I'm also passionate about technology, especially open source software and web applications. I started supporting technologies in libraries in 1992 while I attended Wright State University. Over the past 25 years I've helped public, academic, school, and special libraries use technology to provide better services to their patrons.

I'm currently the Interim Lead for the Application Development Team at the University of Cincinnati Libraries. Most of my time is spent leading a group of developers on open source projects like Scholar@UC using agile practices.
