Story
Tagline
still trying to figure out what to be if i grow up
Introduction

now at amazon leading the consumer engagement team which includes much of what i find to be some of the most compelling amazon features...  reviews, wishlists, mobile, etc.

==============
until 2014 i had the honor and privilege to be a googler in kirkland/seattle leading
hangouts
chrome
and random other stuff

i do things the way i think they should be.  do what's right, do what's efficient, do what helps people.  rules are guidelines and guidelines bend. 

to understand my typing is to understand me....

why no capitals?
several y's... emacs lover...those who know emacs know you use your left pinky a lot.  then started developing rsi in left pinky... had to reduce use.  never learned how to use the right shift key.  dropping caps made a huge difference in pain.  also found that it made a *very* big difference in typing speed... so less injury and higher speed... never went back.  now use caps for emphasis..  some do it for style.. e e cumings and such.  those who know me know that's bogus b/c i have no style.  its about pragmatics.

from emacs to efficiency to pragmatics to ignoring the style....  my lack of caps illustrate me.
Bragging rights
my mom can't believe i wear sweats to work. don't own a single pair of jeans.

i'm not a romney fan.  even so i think it was bold of him to do this (if you presume it wasn't a ploy to enter the race. i personally don't think it was.. time will tell.

what's most interesting and telling is all the social media response from trump supporters attacking back.  do a search.  what i see so far is ~100:0 of responses attacking romney versus disputing what he said.

the responses prove his point that the campaign is breeding hate and personal attack.  

the breeding of hate above all is  #sadforamerica

yeah. I totally talk like that.

Republican front-runner Donald Trump mocked Asians with broken English while campaigning  in Dubuque, Iowa.

Been there. It is a sombering experience. The bones of some three million people that once lived, laughed, loved and toiled - just like us. It makes you think.

gargoyle high on the tower of notre dame cathedral.

if kim jong un dyed his hair and combed it forward.....
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ordered his country to be ready to use its nuclear weapons at any time and to turn its military posture to "pre-emptive attack" mode in the face of growing threats from its enemies, state media said on Friday.
