My father, who I’ve written about and who has commented here several times, finally started his own blog called Hal 9000 . He’s using Google’s new service, which I guess means there is no RSS feed. I can’t find a link to any syndication feed on the site. Of course, since it took him a week to email me the address, maybe he’s looking to duck my criticism? 😄
Seriously, my Dad has been a *HUGE* influence on my career (though he always thought I switched jobs too often – I say I was just looking for the right place which I finally found @ MSFT). He’s been around UNIX and C since the start. From Dad’s first post:
I’ve been around computing for a long time! My first job after getting my doctorate was at Bell Labs. In the Spring 1971 I installed my first Unix system – with Ken Thompson help. Because my thesis delt with compiler theory I was interested in C from the beginning – static routines was my suggestion.
Over the years I’ve worked on air traffice controls systems, case and office tools, handwriting recognition algorithms, to name a few. I am one of the authors of the Systems Engineering CMM.
Currently, I teach OO Programming, and OO Analysis & Design at Johns Hopkins University (part-time engineering school)
My current interests include Security & Enterprise Architectures for a large gov’t agency; designing Service Orient Architectures; and software development tools.
Just yesterday, I ran into a TechEd attendee who worked at Bell Labs back in the day who recognized my last name. A friend of mine who’s an architect evangelist for MSFT also recognized my name from his days at Bell Labs. Sure is a small world.
I added a link to Hal 9000 in my navigation links section. At this rate, will I need a family blog roll?
