I'm passionate about coding and researching the history of technology as well as exploring where technology is leading.

I used to work in flight simulation doing both hardware implementation (electrical design, wiring), web development (design, development, webmaster), as well as software development (desktop development in C#).

I'm a big fan of both using and contributing to Open source projects.

I am the creator of the pypreprocessor library that can be found on PYPI as well as Google code.

comment Alternative to Facebook
Disapora looks like the best option so far, even though it's still a few months from the mainstream. OStatus is great, but I see it as one component of building social networking sites, not the whole package. I'm going to wait to see if Diaspora will gain traction in the main stream before giving it the ol checkmark.

@Patrik thanks for the update. I wonder if the devs understand that 88mph isn't really fast at all. Goofy university geeks. ;)

comment How does alexa know all these information?
+1 ;) There's a reason those toolbars come with a performance hit to surfing the web. They're spying on you.

comment How can I determine if I can trust a company with my information?
+1 sounds like a pretty good litmus test to me. Especially, considering that almost all email is sent across the wire unencrypted. It wouldn't take a genius to write a silent trojan that could sniff your email for keywords like 'password' and re-transmit them to a specified source.

comment Is there a web app for scheduling web tasks?
@tobeannounced you can execute selenium scripts in Chrome, you just won't be able to use the IDE to create them. It's probably a good thing that web automation is hard. If it were made any easier there would just be more people using it to spam.

comment Will having a Facebook account soon become a necessity for use of unrelated web apps?
+1 Webmasters that don't know any better (the minority) will rely solely on FB Connect for authentication but the majority will appeal to a open authentication platform that doesn't violate their users privacy. OpenID/OAuth are gaining a lot more momentum in this arena. Even Facebook uses it to authenticate its users now. I don't think it will be much of an issue in the near future.
