I created this site for several reasons. There is a lot of great content on the web, but there is also a lot of rubbish. I wanted to highlight some of the great stuff I have found. Secondly, I have learned tonnes from the content others put on the web, so I wanted to have a place where I could share some of the tips and tricks I have found useful in subject areas I find interesting.

So, what do I find interesting? Pretty much anything that involves science and technology; computer programming, computer security, and photography to name a few. I also find topics on how technology is used by others and incorporated into our society quite interesting. Related to science, I also am intrigued about how we learn, and our cognitive abilities. How to we tell good information from bad? 

What's my background you ask?

Well, I studied electrical and computer engineering at the University of Toronto, graduating in 1996. While I majored in electrical engineering, I actually took quite a few computer engineering courses in my final year. After graduation, I spent much of my time developing and testing software, along with factory automation. I have done support work (bug fixing) for legacy compilers and software development tools on the AS/400. I have also done electrical design, and PLC programming for factory automation (car body in white assembly). I now design and build test equipment for various automotive and consumer electronics.
