About This Website: A History

This website has had several different versions. Originally, it started as the traditional "computer science major has to have a website" website. After graduation I geared the website more toward educational and technology resources that I created or discovered. Following that the focus changed to reflect two aspects: my professional career, including my educational, volunteer, webpage development work; and my personality and interests. Although the focus of the website has changed over time, most of the previous webpages have been archived in various sections of this website.

Where did you come up with the domain name of iollan? - I came across the name Iollan while reading Tain by Gregory Frost (ISBN: 044179534X) and used that name for my role playing games characters. In Tain, based on the Táin Bó Cúailnge (The Cattle Raid of Cooley), Iollan was listed as one of the foster sons of Fergus mac Róich. When I joined the Society for Creative Anachronism, I took the name of Iollann mac a Phearsoin. I added the letter n onto the original spelling, as there was only one reference in recorded history (that I have found so far) to a name spelled similarly, that of a twelfth century king of Leinster, Iollann mac Dúnlaing. So when I decided to register for a domain name, the choice wasn't that hard. I just picked something by which I was already known.
