Welcome to todddshane where you can learn about all sorts of things that make up my life. I have been actively involved in Statusnet up until now and plan to spend my life coding and working on applications that change peoples lives. I am also a christian and spend time in church with my friends. Most of the time you will find me active on twitter and Facebook as I enjoy the social side of things.
When I am not working you will find me on the golf course or playing around with my new golf simulator at home.I am determined to drop my handicap and the only way I know how to do that is with consistent practice and hard work. Building a consistent golf swing is probably one of the hardest things I have ever tried to do! I decided to go for the Optishot Simulator as this was affordable and contains all the features I needed to sort out my golf swing without every needing to leave home. Getting to the driving range, after work, is not possible that often due to work commitments and becomes even harder over winter.
I also enjoy TV and watching Top Gear. Clarkson is always fun and if you have never watched it then I recommend you start when you see it listed!
I have worked at IBM as a PHD fellowship assistant with an internship involving projects like XEN and IBM technologies and have also worked with UNISYS as a teaching assistant while working on my PHD all the time focusing on operating system technologies. If I get the time I hope to improve the software that came with my golf simulator!
During 2008 I spent most of my time working on USEINX Zen technology which was a great year and really set my career on track!
