Story

It's ok, everything breaks eventually.
Introduction
I'm a developer programs engineer for the Google+ platform.

I program samples that demonstrate Google+ functionality in a variety of scenarios and platforms.

Circle me to get information on how to drive users to your site using Google+ and develop on top of the Google+ platform.
Bragging rights
In the past I have created my own social network, file sharing network, web mail system, teleconferencing robots that are remotely controllable, embedded controllers for researchers, distributed systems, and own set of AIs for robots as well as the specific hardware for them. I worked on Windows up through Windows 8, and do much more than just software engineering.

Just in case you ever need to win an argument about the origins of a techno sub-genre... it's been updated now so you can click through to any deep sub-genre.

This place is rather dreary, if you're at the MTA, odds are you're having a bad time. They should put their hours on the web site. The MTA is open from: Monday to Friday 8am - 5pm
