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.

I stumbled across a fascinating
article about the collapse of three societies: Easter Island, the Anasazi, and the Norse settlement in Greenland, all of which collapsed (at least in part) because they overexploited their environment. These stories sound frighteningly like scale models of our own environmental arrogance today.

Another cool electric car prototype: Tango. I wish them luck not getting stomped by Big Oil and the politicians in their pocket.

Finally someone has made the thing I've been calling "ReplayRadio."

I'm pretty fanatical about having the most lucrative credit cards I can find, and this is a good card if you (will) shop at Amazon. It is now my secondary card, behind an AmEx that pays 2% (but that isn't nearly as widely accepted as Visa).

I just finished re-reading Four Past Midnight, and noticed a couple of interesting things that I had missed when I read it the first time, twelve years ago. Firstly, the similarity between the story "The Library Policeman" and Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes. Secondly, I had an idea some months ago for a story. Now I see that although I had no conscious recollection of the story "The Sun Dog," it is similar enough to my idea that it was obviously the inspiration.
