If Google can ever work out how to reconcile normal Google accounts with apps accounts, I might actually use this a lot... but people trying to find me via my email address that is bound to an apps account will fail... which sucks.

Story
Introduction
I'm Alec McEachran. I am a software engineer, living in San Francisco, working for a stealth social gaming startup.

I've been learning to code for as long as I can remember. Before I got into software engineering I was a mathematics and philosophy teacher. I started making software for schools and ran a blog www.ptolemy.co.uk for education.

I worked for Picsel creating their Document Content Suite for Windows smartphones, then for Yomego building virtual worlds. Then I moved to San Francisco and worked for Slide before moving to Gaia, building Facebook games at both.

I maintain a blog about ActionScript coding at www.alecmce.com. I have given several talks about ActionScript coding in San Francisco over the last few years, and expect to give more in the future.
