Thank you for visiting.

Danny Squared My name is Daniel Howard. I grew up in Chicago, and I live in San Francisco Brooklyn Mountain View Sunnyvale, CA. I was born in 1976: the year of the American Bicentennial. I have a Bachelor's degree in English Rhetoric, but I make my living as a Systems Administrator.

I enjoy writing, and I started publishing on the web in 1995, and an online journal in 1996. I will introduce you further on the Welcome page, or you can start exploring on your own . . .

Two Billion Humans

“We get there by fast-tracking two important human rights: One, full gender equity and schooling for all girls, through at least secondary education. And, two, affordable and accessible family-planning services for all. If we could bring the global fertility rate — voluntarily: I do not support coercion of any kind — to an average of one child per woman, the human population would start to approach 2 billion within four generations.”
