Previously (2009/2010 academic year), I was a visiting researcher with the Stanford Center for Computational Earth & Environmental Science (CEES).
I first visited the Dept. of Energy Resources Engineering (ERE) in February and March 2009.
In the dim and distant past, I was a strange thing called a Pro-Rata Part-Time Assistant Lecturer in the School of Computing at DIT, where I worked variable number of hours each year from 1996 until 2006. I also worked as a freelance programmer, trading as Netrogen.
I used to lecture on relational database theory. If you're interested in the relational model, I have plans to create a site at relationalmodel.info espousing my own particular biases and half-assed notions about the relational model and denigrating anyone who disagrees with me with a cheap ad hominem attack: it seems to be the âdone thingâ in that field ;o)
I share my birthday with Joseph Marie Jacquard, inventor of the Jacquard loom. Although it was not the first machine to use punch cards, it is considered to have been the machine that perfected their use. The Jacquard loom is considered a landmark in the development of programmable machines and a precursor to the modern computer.
I am a member of the Friends of Charles Darwin.
My user page on WikiPedia, User:EmmetCaulfield, will tell you far more than you ever wanted to know about me.
I also have an account on YouTube, which I've started using for sharing video clips with the folks back home. I usually disable comments since YouTube is the existential proof that âopinions are like assholesâ.
Old clients of mine have found themselves the victims of spamdexing, so here's a gratuitous inbound link to the real site: www.ecdlmanual.org/syllabus4.
