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.

A new writing: a few
anecdotes from high school.

I wonder if anyone has done a meta-weblog yet. That is, a weblog that is strictly about other people's weblogs. I suspect so.

Rode to work today on my Razor scooter for the first time. (I got it from MobShop for the low, low price of $75.) It's a fun little machine. It's great as a toy, and can be useful if your commute is as friendly as mine (a little over a mile, gently downhill, smooth pavement). It can be a bit jarring if the terrain isn't very smooth (sidewalks work best). If you plan on riding it seriously, you might consider a more advanced model such as the Xootr instead.

I just finished reading Geeks by Jon Katz, and following that, his Hellmouth series on SlashDot (about the Columbine massacre and the resulting backlash against geeks). A dominant theme in both of these is the isolation (at best) and abuse (at worst) that geeks -- rather, nonconformists -- typically suffer in junior and high school. Very moving stuff, brought back a lot of (mostly bad) memories of my own school years. Fortunately, like many of us, I left that behind when I went to college.

A couple of new writings: a horribly geeky song parody I wrote long ago, and a slightly sappy piece about getting caught in the rain with my wife.
