Hi, I’m John Adams, an Internet engineer, researcher, and photographer from San Francisco, CA, USA.
On this blog, I’ll discuss emerging technologies for web development (Ruby/Rails, Python, and other web frameworks), streaming media (audio and video), syndication of content, and scaling issues related to serving large amounts of media into the cloud. If time allows, you might see discussions on digital photography and image manipulation.
I work for Twitter, a social microblogging service, that asks the question, What Are You Doing?.
I’ve worked in the Internet industry for nearly 18 years. In the past, I’ve worked at companies like Apple, c|net, and Inktomi, building secure, large scale infrastructures to support many of your favorite web applications.
