Jay Reding is a full-time web designer for an insurance company, part-time writer, and perennial gadfly. Reding has a blog (like everyone else) called Jay Reding.com.

Reding is also the creator of BloGTK, a weblog editor for Linux whose second version is scheduled to ship with Duke Nukem Forever.

A graduate of Gustavus Adolphus College, Reding is currently a law student at The University of St. Thomas.

Reding also refers to himself in the third person, a habit that many people find slightly weird.
