I have a profile on LinkedIn.
I am currently employed as a software developer at Thomson Reuters. It should go without saying that nothing on this site represents the views of my employer, Donald Duck, or anybody other than me, but apparently we need to be explicit about that these days. My resume is here.
I have a blog. If I feel I need to get up on a soapbox about something, this is where I do it. There aren't many things that are important enough (or have bothered me long enough) that I feel the need to publish something for all to see, hence the long periods without entries. Also, I have a certain tendency to blog about things that annoy me severely, so it tends toward the...incendiary. If you can't handle a little strong language, try something else.
Want to know about my general philosophy? Wondering why I spent so much time on Ubuntu despite not getting paid for it? Take a look here here.
Want to contact me? Observe that my first name is "Alex", and observe the contents of your browser's address bar. I think you can figure it out. (Email addresses are typically all lower-case, by the way.) I'm sure you're a wonderful person, but there are many people who are not, and they tend to have digital minions who jump like rabid dogs on anything that looks like an email address, so I have to make you guess. Sorry. The spammers have won.
I have a public key, by the way. I sign most of my email with it. Any email purporting to be from me but without a cryptographic signature may not actually be from me. If the signature is invalid, somebody is definitely doing something evil.
I have a CA certificate. Installing it will enable you to access my web site securely over SSL (and do other things like chat over XMPP if you have an account). Of course, the important question is this: do you trust me not to impersonate your email provider? If so, then here you go. If not, you can choose to trust individual certificates for my various services. PROTIP: if your last name isn't Wauck, you probably shouldn't install any of these, and you definitely shouldn't install the CA certificate.
I have written quite a bit of code in my time. Some of it is even publicly available.
Why does this site look so boring?
Why did I choose impulse101.org?
