Glider pilot, scuba diver, hiker, sailor, dancer, (nature) lover, traveller, author and much more. That is where my passion is. Professionally, I am educated in electronics engineering and I have a 30+ year background in IT, half of which in software development, half in IT-production. For 1½ years I worked with the best professionals in the world at AT&T Bell Labs in New Jersey, evaluating speech recognition technology using statistical methods, the very same methods used in AI.
In my spare time I like to develop technology to fuel my passions. I have created 5 - 10 websites (at least) in Joomla. I like the MVC structure and whenever I encounter the need for new functionality I try to code it myself. You are yet to see my first publicly available Joomla extension, though.
Having seen how difficult it is to get an organisation of volunteers to agree on common standards for image and video usage (naming, owner mgmt, folder mgmt, version mgmt, annotation mgmt and more) I would love create a component resembling Photoshop Organizer. It should also allow the use of image metadata at display time in order to avoid redundant information. Also in the proces of developing applications that will Joomla to serve as presenter of online environmental data.
