UPDATE: My new book, "Data Push Apps with HTML5 SSE" is out and selling! Get it from O'Reilly here: http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920030928.do Or from Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1449371930 Or from any good bookseller.


I'm director at QQ Trends, a company that solves difficult data and software challenges for our clients. (We often have freelance projects, so get in touch if interested.)

UPDATE: currently looking for a part-time CSS/JS programmer. 理想は東京所在、日本語が読める方。Interesting project(s), you will definitely learn something.

(And, of course, please do get in touch if you have interesting challenges that you would like our world-class experts to work on!)

Typical work: doing fun stuff with data (fixing, mining, etc.), web sites (front and back-ends), trading strategies. Research: trading strategies, computer go, machine translation, understanding context, AI search algorithms. Languages: C++, PHP, R, javascript, and many more.

I'm British, living and working in Tokyo for almost 20 years. Human Languages: English, Japanese (fairly fluent, 1 kyu), some German, Chinese and Arabic.

(Contact me at dc at qqtrend dot com: please mention you are coming from StackOverflow, so I know it is not spam.)


Easy ways to irritate me on StackExchange sites (whether my own question or someone else's): 1. Downvote without a comment (N/A/ if someone already left a comment and you just agree with it, of course); 2. Answer in comments. Other than that I'm a really easy-going pragmatic guy :-)
