Look me up on LinkedIn

I don't wear bad glasses or suspenders and I don't glow in the dark.

I don't like pocket protectors and no, I don't know Edwin, Marty or Linda in the I.T. department at ebay although I'm certain they're pulling down great salaries...

I like caffeine.

I prefer to code in Perl or Python, not Visual Basic, and it's pronounced Li-nix, Leen-ooks or Line-ux. Whatever makes you happy.

I can proudly wear a t-shirt from another company and still look cool.

I believe in innovation, not obfuscation; peer review, not patent wars, and that the penguin is a cute but fearsome animal!

Geeks are the second best paid people in the world, first to be blamed for technical problems, and the only reason why civilization doesn't crumble around your ears!

My name is Eman, and I am a geek.
