I'm an independent Computer Scientist interested in search quality, frameworks for developing distributed applications, aspect-oriented software development, automated software engineering, Internet Computing, and a large variety of other things. Lately I've been working on statistical machine learning. I've worked at Google, the Research Institute for Advanced Computer Science in the Intelligent Systems Division of NASA Ames Research Center, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Space, IntelliCorp and Hewlett-Packard Laboratories, and on the faculty of the Computer Science Department of Indiana University, Bloomington. I spent most of the 70s at Stanford
