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.

Blog as plot device

The show Crossing Jordan has a clever plot device currently: The character Nigel has a blog, which he discusses on the show, and which
really exists, running a separate subplot of its own. That's about the only good thing I have to say about Crossing Jordan these days, though; the last couple of episodes feel like the plot writing has been given over to a computerized random plot generator. Like JWZ's dissociator, it would take all of the previous episodes as input, and then statistically generate a random new plot from them.
