The Quick & Dirty:

  • 9+ years in the biz, 10 messing around
  • All the latest in HTML, CSS, JS & PHP (Sorry, no .net or Ruby skills yet)
  • Cross-browser compatible code from Photoshop or Illustrator files.. or napkins!
  • Custom Specialities in Wordpress theming & plugins, Twitter & jQuery
  • Subversion, server-log analysis, and blocking hack-attempts (of late).
  • Data/Project Geek. I ♥ timelines.

I’ve compiled some handy PHP functions I’ve had to whip up. More extensive code-samples are also available.

So everyone’s talking (confused?) about Cloud Computing, and the past few days have been interesting: Stallman bashing & now Microsoft adopting (my, how those two go hand-in-hand!).

But what I find even more amusing is that Microsoft’s Cloud is slated to support geo-replication (your data at multiple geographic server-locations) and Stallman is worried about privacy (of course that’s still an issue) but also if MS opens up geo-replication to users, why can’t I just replicate my data to my home-server of my own build & storage? Or better yet, how about I just build my own Cloud-particle with VNC?

The sad part about Cloud Computing is not that I lose my privacy, but that user-data which was previously a mess confined to their laptop, is now a world-wide-mess. “Shoot! Was that on Google Documents or MS’s Cloud? Ack! Where’d my files go?!” If search is the future (despite what yahoo says, though I agree) then we’ll need customized search engines which I enter my user+password into to allow it access to search all my Cloud-resources.

Hmm.. did I just come up with a copywritable idea?? Wouldn’t cross-cloud search kinda makes Google’s Desktop Search a little less relevant. Or if users still keep data on their own machines, maybe we can call it “Lightning” or “Raindrop”..
