Wondering how our software development process works? Take a look!

Find me on twitter, or read my blog. Don't say I didn't warn you because I totally did.

However, I no longer work at Stack Exchange, Inc. I'll miss you all. Well, some of you, anyway. :)

comment Is browser fingerprinting a viable technique for identifying anonymous users?
"bio-metric data" could also be when people access the site, which URLs, how often, their word and language patterns.. none of this requires JavaScript

comment Are By-Design “Bugs” a Bad Sign?
maybe, but it's a lot more powerful to cite the data of "hundreds of people have filed bugs on this!" than it is to have a few rabid users telling you that you have violated their personal interpretation of the Magical Principle of Least Astonishment and they are astonished. I'm a bit weary of the latter, since one man's "astonishment" is another man's "straightforward".

comment Where to look for challenging jobs with a relaxed atmosphere?
is there possibly a distinction between USA and Europe here? For example in the USA it is EXTREMELY rare to have more than about 1 week of vacation per year, whereas in Europe, I get the impression that triple that (or more) is the norm?
