Things have certainly changed since the last update on this page. I always think that
if people are going to have a web page for themselves that at least they should have a
picture of themselves. This most recent digital picture is of my wife Jeanie and me.
We got married and now live in Campbell, CA. We also live with our four
"kids" Stinky, Cow , Bunny Foo-foo, and Baby (pictured below).
I used to work for a software engineer company called Handspring. They made handheld
computers like the Visor and "communicators" (handheld computers with cell phones
built in) like the Treo. I worked for Handspring for over 3 years, right after I
graduated from college. After Handspring I worked for Palm, I worked there for 7
Currently I work for Vitamin D. The company was founded in 2007 to develop
solutions for the next generation of intelligent computing. The goal is to combine
elegant user interface design with artificial intelligence to simplify people's lives.
We believe that technology does not have to be frustrating. Intelligent computing,
combined with thoughtful design, can create solutions that are powerful yet invisible.
Before working for Handspring, I was a student at Stanford University studying Computer
Science. At Stanford I earned my BS and my MS. While at Stanford, I was involved in a
number of mostly computer related activities (yes, I'm a computer geek--I admit it). I
was part of the excellent section leading program at Stanford in which undergraduates
are involved in teaching the introduction to computer science class. I also was
fortunate enough to teach an Assembly Language Programming class a few times.

I have a few friends with web presences. Actually, it's not too
many now that most of them have graduated from college and their
old accounts have expired. Here are ones I could find (if I'm
missing someone's page, let me know):
- Jeanie Ramos - My wife!
- Eric Anderson - My brother.
- Ross Anderson
- My dad. This is a page about the antennas he's designed.
- Andrea Kuegel
- One of my cousins. This page has some of her writing.
- Marci Kuegel
- Another of my cousins. This is actually a web site showing clay
sculptures she makes and sells called Skidgets.
- Lynn and William Kuegel
- My aunt and uncle. This is also a page displaying their work.
- Priscilla Cinque
- A friend from work. Lots of cool projects that she's worked
on. Check out the peep movie.
- Bob Petersen
- Another friend from work.
- Lisa Kunze
- A friend from high school. Her page is pretty out of date too.
Feng - Former drawmate at Stanford. Note: this is his
wedding page. He was recently married.
Mok - High school friend. This is also a wedding page.
- Grab Bag Design
is a web site for a web design firm run by my friends Jeff
Giles, Rahul Gupta, and Tim Dietrich.
I don't spend a whole lot of time these days on non-work
computer projects. However, there are still a few things that I
- I've done a few
PalmOS. I've got a whole page devoted to those, so I won't
really talk about them here.
- I'm running my own server at home. It does email, web, DNS,
and a few other things. It hosts two domains. The first is
"disordat" name was inspired by the game "You Don't Know Jack",
which my friends and I used to play a lot. The idea for the
name goes to Solomon Lefler, who was one of my housemates
several years ago. I use the "disordat" domain for random
things like personal email, email aliases, and hosting this
web page. The second server is
"Byteswapped" is a computer term that referrs to data that
is the wrong endianness. At least, that's how I've heard it
used. Pretty nerdy, but I thought it was a neat domain name for
computer-related stuff, so I use this domain name for hosting
any software that I write.
- I have in the recent past taught a class on
Language Programming at Stanford. Perhaps sometime in
the future I'll have time to teach it again (I don't want to
teach it again unless I have a lot of time to devote to it).
These are projects that I used to work on, but I've kinda given
- Old Wilcox email list - I used to try
to keep track of email addresses for Wilcox High School
students and alumni. Then, too many people got email
addresses and it just became too hard. This list hasn't been
updated in a long, long, long while.
BatchFTP 2.6.1 is an
AppleScript that allows you to download a whole group of files
at once based on a common prefix. It's written to use Peter Lewis's
Anarchie. This script is pretty outdated now, though I
guess someone might still get some use out of it. I don't use
or maintain it any more (and haven't for years).
I really don't have too many links here, since I'm pretty bad
about keeping them up to date.
