As a quick introduction. I'm a long time Smalltalker. Started with
VisualWorks, and worked with Versant. I've designed and built very large
institutional pharmacy (>10,000 Rx's a day) applications handling medical
records, electronic billing, workflow, automated packaging, drug dispensing
conversion (dose -> strength), and drug utilization review, basically making
sure the right drug, with the right dose gets to the right patient for the
right reason. Before that I designed and built a Perinatal Risk assessment
program that helped to ensure that babies were born healthy and that mom's
got the care they needed before problems happened.
I joined the Squeak community a number of years ago. Started the
Cryptography Team, which I still try to lead when I have time. I was also
instrumental to getting Squeak involved with the Software Freedom Law
Center. I made the first calls and introductions to the board, because I
needed their help with the Cryptography Team registration. I've been an
active member for a long time but only as time permits.
I joined Qwaq specifically to work with Andreas Raab. He was a great friend
We worked together closely with others like David Smith to build Qwaq.
David is a really great guy to work with too! He is the main creator of
Croquet, David P. Reed is the main designer.
David, Andreas and I started 3D ICC. (3D Immersive Collaboration Consulting
www.3dicc.com). We are growing and taking on new customers. Some of them
are HUGE! We have a great team including Julie LeMoine our CEO and Göran
Krampe who is fantastic.
We have been watching a number developments in Pharo. We are especially
interested in COG and spur, and a new 64 bit vm and image. We are using
Pharo for some pieces and we really like the vm / plugin build structure.
The community is very active and we like the new development work we see.
This is all terrific.
