[Note: a "helpful" WikiGnome moved the contents of the AndyGlewWikiExperience here. I guess that's alright, but it sure stifles ongoing discussion in a big way. Andy, feel free to reverse this refactoring into a form you and the discussion participants are more comfortable with.]

Webpages, Wikis, etc.

Most of the links below are obsolete.

My most recent net.presence is at 'Old Stuff'

Obsolete, non-editable, university web pages: http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~glew/glew.html.

For several years, I kept my CV and resume at Geocities, http://www.geocities.com/andrew_f_glew/. That was closed down n, what, 2009? Google docs and my own websites are now my web.homes, along with linkedin and facebook.

A public wiki, on a server that a friend has lent me space on: http://glew.dyndns.org (BrokenLink 2004-11-11).

I ran several inside-AMD wikis - and, a few wikis at Intel, for that matter.

A novice wiki user... since, what, 1996? I guess that means that I am not really a novice any more. See AndyGlewWikiExperience?.

Some software relevant links:

http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~glew/sw-rants.html
http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~glew/programming-languages.html
http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~glew/high-level-editting.html
http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~glew/config-mgmt.html

http://glew.dyndns.org contains stuff on interests such as programming languages and coding standards.

The UWisc web pages are now orphaned. One day I hope to have broadband and a WebServer at home, so that I am no longer at the mercy of companies, organizations, and institutions. (2009: rented cloud server space for http://glew.ca, http://andy.glew.ca, and http://semipublic.comp-arch.net. Only the last was properly set up as of March 2010.

Identity

Software: A slow but sure programmer. A poor typist with carpal tunnel. Interested in the meta-processes of programming, as a way to make up for my poor physical skills. Interested in XP and lightweight methodologies.

Hardware: A computer architect. I.e. designs microprocessors, not buildings. Worked on the Intel P6 and MMX. Interested in XP for hardware design. Now at AMD!!

Connections:

I used to work at "The Little Software House on the Prairie", Gould CSD/Motorola MCG with ScottPreece and BrianMarick, although not in the same group. BrianMarick made fun of my aspirations to design hardware - actually, he made fun of me in all ways, that just being one particular way.

It's because I was intimidated by you. That used to be my way of being tongue-tied. I'm better now.

No worries, Brian. I have, of late, realized just how advanced "The Little Software House on the Prairie" was. I don't think it's accidental that so many of us have had careers heavily influenced by software quality (you) or hardware quality (me).


Great, great web pages. Don't fix their semi-disorganized order. I loved that, too. Thanks! --WayneConrad

About the lack of lambdas in C++: take a look at http://pobox.com/~oleg/ftp. -- AmirLivne


You asked a question on WikiFarms. It was moved to ComparisonShoppingWiki. Then an answer appeared.

Interested in XP for hardware design.

Yes, I would also find that interesting.

...no longer at the mercy of...

Yes, I feel the same way -- I want to set up my own web server. I'm finding it hard to articulate why I spend so much time diddling with this stubborn box, trying to coax it into serving web pages, when I can (and have) put web pages on distant servers in a tiny fraction of the time. See ProgramComputersYouCanUnplug.

Came across your home page, and realized we had communicated in the past. I found some nice words you had written about FlowBasedProgramming while at UWisc. How have your ideas evolved since? --PaulMorrison
