about tony (firstname.lastname@example.org)
It seems a bit vain writing about myself, but I suppose it’s possible that you, the reader, may want to know something about me.
I’m a software engineer working for Google.com since the fall of 2004. I spent about a year and a half working in the ads quality group, about a year working on things related to Firefox, and am currently working on Google Chrome.
Before I started at Google, I spent a summer working for IBM as an extreme blue intern.
I have a Master’s degree from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign where I worked with Brian Bailey in the HCI research group. Specifically, I did some work in attentional interfaces, software designed to help users manage interruptions. During my formative undergraduate years, I went to Miami University of Ohio and spent my latter years attempting to build community on western campus.
On this site, I blog about things I think are interesting in technology. I also write software and release it free for other to deride for it’s poor quality. In particular, I’m the author of Webnote, which is much more popular than I ever imagined it would be.
I also maintain a couple (unofficial) RSS feeds— one of Margaret Cho’s blog and one of angryasianman .
If I’m not at a computer, then I’m probably at a music concert. I attend a fair number of indie rock and indie pop shows.
I also have a livejournal where I make lots of friends only entries.
