Story
Tagline
Geek, wannabe handyman, husband and occasional hero
Introduction
I work in R&D for a clean-tech company in Boston, where there are always tons of fun software (and hardware) problems to solve. 

I have plenty of things to keep me busy, but try find time to explore new technology and hopefully share something along the way.

More notable projects include MarcoPolo, the Wooly Fair Scavenger Hunt mobile game, Gmarks for Android, HTTPBuilder, the Python Web Console, as well as various contributions to open-source projects such as Groovy and SleekXMPP.

You know what you're talking about but most of us don't. Even if we clicked on the link, chances are we would have to do some research to learn what it's for. Many forget this when posting new apps or gadgets.

Hi folks!  I just released a new version of Porch, the Twitter and Facebook widget.  If you're on KitKat, I finally fixed the bad list layout issue, as well as a crash during Twitter auth.  Grab it here!

The Play store says the app is not compatible with any of my devices!  I understand my Nexus 7 since it doesn't have a rear camera, but how about Galaxy S2?

Very friendly, much easier to deal with than a big high-pressure dealer. Great selection of nice cars and their service has been excellent. Next time I need a vehicle I'll go to them first.

Waiting outside a store that supposedly opens at 8:30 is no fun.

Great selection of craft brews, including a number of excellent belgian beers. Food is decent too, better than most of the American food found in the area.

Amazing Mexican food. Easy to miss from the outside, but we went in and the chef/ owner came out and personally explained the day's specials and also the historical origin of the dishes. This man is definitely a master at his craft and the food was beautifully presented as well. The location might be a bit out of the way for most folks but well worth the stop.
