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.

temple of debod.   a beautiful temple originally in egypt, now in madrid.  i didn't know they did such things as totally relocating a whole temple.  

it's a gorgeous temple, but even more so in the evening set at the top of the hill like this.

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.

Many of those aren't original, but were added in the 19th century when the cathedral was deeply re-wroked.

a day to remember!  :)
 
The current map of the United States where same-sex marriage is legal. Today the Supreme Court of the United States ruled 5-4 in Obergefell v Hodges that same-sex marriage cannot be prohibited and ordered its validity and enforcement in all states and areas subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. Constitution.
