The statement "Once data is entered on the internet it should not need to be typed in again" is an area in which Paul hopes to make a difference. He is currently developing a secure P2P network designed to take a lot of complexity and frustration out of using the net especially for the young and the aged.
Because of his long history of hands on business management and processes he likes to use tools that reduce development friction and enable things to actually get done.
Eclipse, OSGi, Bndtools and Vaadin are the tools he has settled on for his software development work.
