Questions from runstaverun:

  1. We all know that Acad Tech was split and renamed precisely because you said "I will never work for Academic Technology" ... now that they've changed the name, are you planning to be there forever?

    No.


  2. What is your favorite joke?

    I don’t have a particular one to offer that stands out, and I hate when people feel compelled to pull an arbitrary answer out of their ass when asked “What is your favorite…” questions, so I won’t..


  3. If you could change one thing about LiveJournal, what would it be and why?

    I’m no fan of the new style system, S2, so probably that. While I appreciate what they are trying to do, in terms of making a full featured language for writing styles. Certainty this will be a lot more flexible than S1, I think a better solution would have been to do something like Zope Page Templates, which its Tag Attribute Language, which embeds the programming constructs right within attributes on existing HTML tags, so you can pull it into any HTML editor. There are a lot of non-programmers that know HTML who I think are going to be unhappy with the new style system. I also don’t think a traditional programming language is the best idea for a templating system. At the same time, I wouldn’t want to inflict XSLT on anybody. Something like ZPT provides a happy medium, I think.


  4. I don't watch much reality television. What has been your favorite reality television show?

    I’ve never been a fan of the more traditional reality television, but I find Trigger Happy TV hilarious. I’m watching it now.


  5. Chris can not be bothered to look up direct quotes for the stock CNS question, so fill in this blank: When working at Drew, I really like the desk employee's _________.

    …ability to keep a straight face with most of our current crop of customers.



Still thinking about mrfantasy's questions.... maybe tommorrow..
