Senior Software Engineer, 8/97 - 11/97

Earthweb had an ambitious but unrealistic plan to develop a distributed object system using Java. I was ostensibly hired to design the virtual community model for the chat server that was supposed to eventually spring from this. Though a lot of time was spent running in all directions, I was able to complete a distributed name service which managed a mapping from names to addresses over TCP/IP, and I also got to spend a lot of time playing with Java on someone else's dime.
