I’ve been on the Internet a long time. I had my first personal web site in 1994, and registered my first domain, borasky-research.net, in 2001. And I’ve got a lot of interests:

  • Twitter – the phenomenon, the tools, the data, the global cocktail party conversation
  • Social Media Analytics Research
  • Linux Capacity Planning, Server Profiling and Performance Troubleshooting
  • Algorithmic Composition and Synthesis of Music
  • Computational Finance

and the underlying technologies: programming languages, applied mathematics and statistics, artificial intelligence, digital signal processing, machine learning, software engineering and high-performance computing. About the only technology I’m not really into is hardware.
