My StackOverflow CV

Ceramic collector, obsessive cook, entrepreneur and professional geek.

I was doing a one-person consultancy for a couple of years, doing some Rails stuff, some .Net services work, and some work in Groovy/Java for a pharmaceutical firm called Dendreon. When that project wrapped up, I took a Rails-focused job at a hybrid Ruby/C# shop, Getty Images.

I'm interested in functional languages like Scala and F# but have relatively limited real-world experience with them.

In previous lives, I've worked for Microsoft, Revenue Science (now Audience Science), Zillow, and a travel company called Virtuoso, the Seattle Times, and a very strange financial/transportation conglomerate.

My long term professional ambition is to find a way to work from Tokyo/Kawasaki/Yokohama either 100% or via frequent travel or remote work opportunities. If you're interested in tracking down a reasonably competent Rails or ASP.net MVC guy and are located near Seattle, WA or Tokyo, Japan or don't mind me working mostly remotely, feel free to contact me.

comment Phrase for observing a rule in a malicious way
This is also known as the "Italian strike", which basically means you follow all the rules, including the ones that are so impractical that they impede everyday work from getting done; most companies are full of official rules done for safety reasons or other formal process reasons that pragmatic employees strategically ignore. Maliciously complying is essentially the same thing

comment What is the correct name for posts made on twitter?
@vgv8: Probably because the brand/word "Twitter" is more likely a corruption of "atwitter": nervously concerned : excited <gossips atwitter with speculation — Time>. "To tweet", pre-Twitter, would have meant "to make a bird-like sound", roughly.
