Why I am here

This afternoon when I had to walk to another building for a meeting, I got thinking about a bunch of stuff I want to write but don't have any place to put it. I then realized that that was, more or less, what LiveJournal (and Blogging) is basically for.

So when I got back to my desk, I decided to take the plunge and start an entry.

Who am I?

I am RonO, or Ron Oakes. I'm a resident of the Chicago area (Bartlett) in Illinois. I've been involved with Science Fiction Fandom for about 10 years, and have been actively involved with Christian Fandom and DucKon both for about 6 years. I own, if not run, the website for Christian Fandom (, and am the chair for the upcoming ConSecration I ( I am a past Chair for DucKon (, and serve as their Registrar -- a term I prefer to "Registration Head," and a completely accurate and usable one -- and as a member of the Board of Directors of the parent corporation. If you know me, or at least who I am, it is probably from these.

I am also a Software Engineer for Motorola (one of the survivors :-). I also work on the Tech Crew for my church, The Wheaton Bible Church (, mostly running PowerPoint (actually Easy Worship), but I've recently started running the audio monitors and doing the service recording as well. (OK I've run monitors and recording once, so far).

I am married with one kid (actually my wifes nephew), and two cats.

Later, I'll have some random thoughts about random subjects to put here.

Bye for now
