    • My background includes several years of business development and over twenty-five years in the computer industry. During this time I have had many articles explaining technology to the layperson published in various print and web magazines and journals.

      I had my first poems published at age 10 when his fifth grade teacher submitted two pieces that were accepted by a literary magazine. Since then I've written poetry off and on throughout my life, taking it up seriously in the summer of 2007.

      I began taking photos while in grade school with my first Brownie camera, given to me by my grandmother. As with my poetry, I prefer interesting takes on commonplace themes.

      Wine Tasting, an Art Crawl and a Poetry Contest -- This past weekend I took several large framed photos to a local Wichita gallery, Three Pea Gallery, who will be selling them along with my books. We are putting the finishing touches on a book signing/wine tasting evening at Three Pea during a monthly event called "Final Friday." It is planned for April 30th, and two other artists, plus the gallery owner, will be showing their work as well. I'll have several copies of my new book ("Aspects Long Forgotten") available and I'll personally sign them ala Rick "Castle." Final Friday, sponsored by Downtown Wichita and the local art districts, is known for its "art crawl," in which several galleries and museums are open late and serve refreshments so that art lovers can move slowly from one gallery to the next. If you live in the Wichita vicinity, I hope you'll stop in. For more info about my book, go to http://www.jackhuber.com/aspects.htm, and please feel free to add yourself to my guest map. One last note: I am sponsoring a continuing 4-line poetry contest on the Ryze network and the latest inspiration is posted today. It's free to enter, but you must be a member of the Ryze group, which is also free. This is a great group, so if you have a mind to enter this semi-monthly contest, please join us at http://www.ryze.com/networkindex.php?network=wordmeisters and look up the latest Quatrain City contest thread. The rules are also included. --Jack
