Daniel Harrison's Personal Blog

Personal blog for daniel harrison

About August 25, 2007

My name’s Daniel and I’m based in sunny Brisbane, Australia.  When I’m not melting I’m interested in things like information economics; innovation; economic and political systems; languages (computer + linguistics); software development, particularly lean driven processes; virtualisation and cloud computing; statistical, adaptive, and neural systems (Or at least I am at the moment). I have degrees in economics from University of Queensland and IT(software development) from the Australian National University. For my day job I write software in Java/Scala/C#/Javascript over web 2.0, windows rich clients and server side things like REST and WSDL based services.

I read avidly and am a bit of a space opera junkie. My favourite authors at the moment are Peter F Hamilton (Void trilogy was awesome) and Charles Stross (The Fuller Memorandom was awesome).  I enjoy a good hit of tennis and am working on using the term ‘awesome’ less.
