I’ve been on the Internet a long time. I had my first personal web site in 1994, and registered my first domain,, in 2001. And I’ve got a lot of interests:

  • Computational journalism Communications of the ACM, October 2011, "Computational Journalism"
  • Twitter – the phenomenon, the tools, the data, the global cocktail party conversation
  • Linux Capacity planning, Server Profiling and Performance Troubleshooting
  • Algorithmic composition and digital synthesizers
  • Computational Finance, High-frequency trading and Market microstructure

and the underlying technologies: programming languages, applied mathematics and statistics, artificial intelligence, digital signal processing, machine learning, software engineering and high-performance computing. About the only technology I’m not really into is hardware.

Where can you find me?
