New job, Going to BarCamp3 NYC this weekend

Dear readers - I haven't posted much recently because I've been busy starting a new job. The company is MyStrands.com, the NYC office is still under construction, and my boss is this fellow.

The project I'm on is in early stealth-mode. All I can tell you so far is that it's not the MyStrands music recommender product, it's something new and very promising. And there's a good chance that I will be using Erlang for some part of it. :)

This weekend I will be at BarCampNYC3. Please stop by and say "hi"!

I'll be giving a presentation, like all BarCampers, probably a show-and-tell of how I set up the Apache Solr search engine for Flix55.com.
