Proud to be a Google+Ghost
Welcome to the Ghost Nation!
Some have called G+ a "ghost town" but we are so much more...
Some types of circles where I might fit:
- software engineer
- mobile software
- Android development
- Classic Visual Basic
- spam fighter
- avionics & other embedded systems
- nerf toys enthusiast
- walking / hiking
- science fiction
- ADFP (press button, receive bacon)
- privacy advocate (friends just call me a privacy nut)
- "1st generation" G+ users (warning! I may tease heavily, because I am one:
I'm a big fan of Google Plus, and of Google in general. If I seem to be a critic, well, I criticize because I care.
People have asked "why not a senior position" and my answer is in two parts: I don't think I'm going to be able to find work right now "following my passion," and I need to work, so at a lower pressure level, I should be able to accomplish good work, and then afford to pursue my goals as a hobby. And second, I'm self-taught in Android, with zero paid experience yet, so a position commensurate with all my experience would seem dishonest at first.
I never expected to get in any way involved in political protests like the ongoing peaceful 'occupation' on Wall Street. But the near-blackout and massive whitewash going on in the mainstream media makes me feel forced to help distribute some of the reports.
✓Software Craftsman. San Jose, California. Expert in Classic Visual Basic; trainee in Android. Firm believer that it's the computer's job to learn to communicate with all humans; a little disappointed that my fellow programmers haven't made it happen yet.
