waving android

I am currently a software engineer at Google, where as a member of the Android platform team I build frameworks and user interfaces.

The blog here at is mostly historical; you can find more recent posts on .

This is not my beautiful blog.

Sorry for the mess. I’m in the process of upgrading WordPress here on dsandler.org to the latest version, something I haven’t done since 2006.

The code update is done, but the classic “blue bars” design is totally broken (in part because my custom tagging scheme clashes violently with the taxonomy features introduced in WP2.3) so I think I’ll start from scratch.

You’re looking at the “from scratch” part right now, a kind of extreme experiment in non-layout. Over time I’ll build up the design up bit by bit, with an eye to eventually having a consistent new L&F that spans my personal and professional web outlets.

I hope to see you back here (and over on twitter, of course) as things evolve.
