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.

Say "Map!"

Though I've long complained about
MapQuest's many shortcomings, like most people, I've continued to use it. I was hooked on MapBlast for a while, because of the slick presentation they had where directions were drawn as a black-and-white line drawing that captured the topology of the route, but was easier to read than a route overlaid on a map. It looked like something out of Tufte. So of course, when MSN acquired MapBlast (renaming it MapPoint), they dispensed with this feature. Anyway, I just discovered a new mapping site called Map24, which at first glance appears very cool. [via Scoble]
