Who are you?
My name is Eric Lamb and I’m a programmer living in Los Angeles. I’ve been writing code since I was a kid beginning on a TI91. Currently, I’m the Director of IT for a marketing agency called StreetWise Concepts & Culture. Because I oversee all aspects of IT for the company I’m exposed to two very different disciplines; managing both hardware and software.
What this is...
I have 2 basic goals for this blog; write about interesting research and programming ideas and publish open source code and random scripts. Oh yeah, and rants. There'll definitely be the occasional rant. (Rants are fun too
Because my day job exposes me to so many interesting and cool aspects of IT and programming it feels right to share the results with the community. It feels like every day I run into a problem / solution that was interesting and complicated enough to warrant sharing.
The other side is code. I write a lot of code and some of that code’s pretty cool, most of it sucks, but there’s usually something interesting or useful about it. Of course there’s the day to day stuff, where a new or interesting old issue comes into play, but I’m also interested in publishing a few of my projects. So you can definitely expect to see lots of code here!
Will this be any good?
Honestly, probably not. Seriously though, if you’re into programming and IT I think you’ll find some useful info here. If you’re a family member or friend looking for information about me and what I’m doing though, this is going to suck.
