Google Developer Day 2007

The Main Stage This thursday I went over to my second Tech Conference since moving to the San Francisco Bay area, the first being MacWorld back in January, this time, I went to the San Jose convention Center for the 2nd annual Google Developer Day.

Life Changes

My last blog post before this one was in August and things have definitely changed in the lives of Barbara and I since then. The biggest change (really the only change but it has effected so much of my life it's really a category rather then an item) is that I got a new job. I now work as a programmer for Justia Inc. Justia is a company that, among other things, provides websites for lawyers and law firms. The company is based in Palo Alto, California (in Silicon Valley).

With this new post I have also replaced my old blogging software (I was never quite happy with Blog:CMS) with Wordpress, which I was reluctant to try, but now I find it to be such a good blogging software that I have no idea what I had against it for so long.

Corporate worlds

Much of my normal every day life (such as my programming projects like the cabin booking system I’ve been working on for Pastor Tom, and the writing of my novels) have taken a back seat lately to my continued work on getting PortalKeeper off the ground. Tonight I had a Read more…

Pop into Internet Pop Culture

Earlier this week I decided to start entering more of the internet culture, I’ve been a webmaster since 1995 and I’ve kinda got caught in my old ways when I started doing perl programming and such. I noticed that more recent aspects internet culture have gone ignored by me. Last Read more…
