Fourteen yearso ago, I wrote the first web spider, back when the web was small. It was called the Wanderer. Based off of it, I wrote the first web search engine, called "Wandex". It was not very good, but again, the web was small. Within a year, numerous better web search engines appeared. But, I am proud to have had the opportunity to be first.
In the years since, I started a web analytics company, earned two degrees, joined a hardware startup, and started a wireless location company. Now, I have come full circle. In February, I started work at Google in Boston. The first month has been great and it's a remarkable company.
