Story
Tagline
I write about tech and monasteries.
Introduction
I write about technology from a consumer's point of view. My areas of focus include consumer web apps and mobile gadgets, as well as travel- and car-related tech.

After a few years of writing for ReadWriteWeb, and running my own side at SiliconFilter.com, you can now find me at TechCrunch.

Suppose you have a Java app running on a bunch of autoscaled VMs, and you need to debug a rare bug. Manually ssh into each instance, restart the process under gdb, set watchpoints on all of them, sigh....no longer needed. On GCP, just use the cloud debugger, set a breakpoint, and the first time any of your VMs hits that line you get a snapshot with all local variables, stack trace, etc. Problem solved.

You can now sign up and use Google Domains in the US with no invite! The service is clean and has several neat features like support for dynamic DNS. I've also been impressed with how the team listens to feedback and responds. Check out the service!

And if you're outside the US, you can sign up for when Google Domains is available in more countries.
