I'm best known as an author. I wrote RESTful Web Services with Sam Ruby, and the Ruby Cookbook with Lucas Carlson.

I wrote Newsbruiser, an easy-to-use weblog system; Beautiful Soup, the ultra-liberal HTML/XML screen-scraping parser; and The Ultra Gleeper, a recommendation engine for web pages which is unfortunately not easy to use at all. I've also written a couple works of interactive fiction and a jillion other pieces of software, including the original robotfindskitten.

I was once a senior software engineer at CollabNet, and a software architect at the Wesley Clark 2004 presidential campaign.

I live in New York and I like long walks through Python and Ruby code.

This is a test entry. I'm tracking down a problem with NewsBruiser's Advogato import.

Okay, all done. Disregard this entry now.

Hot damn! After a year of inability to access my account due to a forgotten password, I'm back on the air. A lot has happened in the past year; I've changed my personal information to reflect it. Thanks to Raph Levien for helping me out.

Just set up my advogato account. I already have a journal on my homepage; go there if for some reason you care about what I have to say.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
