I'm a web and decentralized systems developer and consultant, and founder of the original Ripple Project (now carried on at Ripple.com).

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

I suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome since a bad viral infection in 2001. To manage symptoms I pace myself to avoid all but moderate, limited exertion.

As of summer 2019, I have begun investigating the possibility that my condition is the result of breakdown of connective tissue in my neck, causing impingement on my spinal cord, aka craniocervical instability. I had a dramatic improvement of symptoms during cervical traction, and am optimistic about getting a diagnosis and hopefully corrective surgery. I would encourage anyone with chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis, or similar "mystery" illnesses, such as fibromyalgia or chronic lyme, to look into this possibility for themselves.


I'm not taking on new projects at the moment.
