Wiki, for me, has been a major AhHa
I was addicted to Wiki immediately upon discovering it in August 2000, but amazed that it took me so long to find it. I'm a long-time software engineer, currently acting as Director of Streaming Applications at SorensonMedia
I started coding in 1977 by writing printer-drivers for RadioShack
TRS-80 Model I computers. I also spent a bunch of time on timeshared machines running PDP-11, MVS, and similar abominations, but microcomputers were my first and on-going love.
I've worked at a lot of great companies (including WordPerfect
, and SorensonMedia
), in really great places (LosAngeles
, Utah, and Munich), and on great technologies (OpenDoc
, among many others). I've also occasionally flirted with being useful in a handful of InternetEngineeringTaskForce
s. I prefer to work for places that strive to and believe they are improving humanity.
I knew Wiki was going to get deep into my blood when, at least once a day for several months after discovering WardsWiki
, I came up with another great topic around which I would like to start one of my own Wikis. I've installed TwikiClone
, but haven't moved much farther than playing around yet. I'm impressed with RandyKramer
's work in compiling a WikiEngineReview
. I'll add my comments to it soon.
My most passionate current project is developing adaptive therapy software for children with autism and other PervasiveDevelopmentalDisorder
s. This is still a hobby for me until I get farther along with my project.
