So, our grueling twenty four hour hackathon has come to a close and I'm finally getting back to normal. I want to thank our team and had a lot of fun with +Nirmal Selvaraj , +Dave Menninger, +Edward Pearson, +Max Sayenko, +Jin Lee, +Alex Arkhipov, +Sarita Tripathy, +Dave Britton, +Charlene Chen among others. It was a surreal experience throughout the night and we really pushed ourselves to the limits building some kick ass products. Our team was able to come up with an idea, execute it and push every feature from idea phase to reality. Attempting to pitch an idea for five minutes running on zero sleep when you're on edge and your nerves are shot is not the best experience but next time maybe the sleep schedule can be better coordinated ;) Until next time.

At first Google+ was awesome. But it seems there is not much going on in G+ in regards to value it's just posts from high profile bloggers flooding my stream and G+ tip and trick links.

I kinda like it. FB has turned into an obituary page for relatives I've never met.

Awesome.
Tom Anderson originally shared:
 
In 2004 or so, people were really afraid of "social networking." Most had no interest in it, and a standard journalist question was "Aren't sites like MySpace killing 'real' human interaction?" How is talking to someone via a given "technology" (hand-written letters, telegraph, phone, email, IM, social network) any less "real"? To me, that's like saying your ears and your eyes aren't "real." For a deaf person a working "ear" is a pretty awesome piece of technology. It's not how you reach out to another human being that matters -- it's whether a connection is made. It's not the medium that determines the value of the interaction. If there is spark set off in the mind and soul of another, then that's "real" human interaction. Now, with something like 25-50% of all new US relationships (dating) starting online, I think people are getting over this fear. Ok, gotta run, my friends are mad I'm spending too much time on G+

Well, I said they should do it. Let's hope this happens.
Apple Inc., sitting on $76.2 billion in cash and securities, is considering making a bid for the Hulu online video service, two people with knowledge of the auction said.

Great talk today at Ancestry with guest Christopher Brown from Opscode and founding engineer on Amazon EC2. I love hearing these guys speak who have dealt with mass amounts of scaling and elasticity. Properly building your application to scale can be a difficult task and it's inspiring hearing success stories from the source.

Why doesn't Apple just buy Hulu so they can roll that into their iCloud offerings and offer streaming TV shows to all paying iCloud customers.

Trying out OSX Lion. I've been slacking a lot of spending time within OSX even though I still argue it's a better general purpose operating system than windows if you want to spend the money on the hardware. I ordered an Apple TV this weekend, so I want to start integrating my devices now within the house.

Story
Tagline
Senior Manager, Engineering at Ancestry.com, changing the world by finding new ways to discover your family history.
Introduction
I'm very entrepreneurial and tend to consistently think of ideas that can change the way people think and operate by putting my thoughts into code.

My background consists of mostly the Microsoft stack but I love to explore new and emerging languages, frameworks and technologies to understand as an engineer how every piece of technology can be different in it's own efficient way.

A great engineer is one who loves to adapt; who wants to learn and who can understand the business from both the technical side as well as the business side.
Bragging rights
I have two left feet.

Insights on Facebook Marketing, Virality and Social Media.

We have been living in Oakland for a couple years now but have not had a chance to stop by this place, although we always walk by it on our evening walks. First, the decor is really nice inside, and they have a great area in the back on their dock right on the water where you an lounge, grab food, enjoy happy hour and so forth. They even have a full bar out there I believe. We opted to stay inside with a nice view of the lake. We started by ordering the Calamari and Rock Shrimp as an appetizer. When it came though, I was quite disappointed as there was only ONE piece of a small shrimp in the whole appetizer. I asked the waitress if this was a mistake and she informed me they serve the appetizer by weight, which seems a little odd for a restaurant of this style. But she asked if we wanted some extra shrimp on the side which we did get and it made up for it. I had the burger with cheese and bacon and my wife had the tuna burger. Both were great, on my burger they add some sort of delicious jelly which made the burger over the top in a good way. It came with fries that tasted fresh. Overall I would recommend grabbing dinner here, or coming for their happy hour which I heard is a great deal for the price.
