The last post on this blog (actually imported from was 3 years ago.  In that time I (a) stopped blogging (b) did a bunch of cool stuff at IBM Research before leaving this past May (c) learned to speak Spanish in Mexico and South America (d) built payyattention and the hourlypress with Christian Gromoll, Matt Gibson, and Lyn Headley.

I’ve been having an awesome time doing some technical work lately.  I’ve been processing twitter streams and distilling them into meaningful chunks.  I wanted to start writing about it, so I’m resuscitating my technical blog and rebranding it as PROJ 89.  The name comes from a huge (apparently) abandoned warehouse I walk by every day in the Dogpatch.  (I presume this is a long defunct name and I can appropriate it freely… if you know otherwise let me know!)
