For the last 30 years, I’ve worked on distributed computing and distributed engineering. Creating distributed computing solutions has taken me in many directions – designing systems architecture and network protocols, customer engagement and business planning, and delivering systems using appropriate programming models and systems engineering practice. And distributed engineering reflects the fact that much of engineering today is carried out by teams drawn from different countries, cultures, and companies. In recent years I've focused on how to weave these diverse elements into an engineering community.

I've also started a separate blog that is dedicated to the issues of "cloud computing". It can be found at
