Writing code since 1979
I have been a professional software engineer for over 10 years. I have written many kinds of software, but my particular strengths are interactive graphics applications, compilers and interpreters, and algorithms.

I also enjoy writing, woodworking, and home improvement. Also this.

One thing I find interesting about IM technology is when you have a conference call containing multiple people, and subsets of those people are having IM conversations with one another. The most interesting example I've seen is
Tim Bray's account of a conference call with himself, a journalist, and a Sun PR coach, in which the PR person was helping him with his phraseology via IM. Besides occasionally being useful, it has a certain naughty passing-notes-in-class feel that is sort of fun.
