    Long bio was long - truncate() would be awesome. So in it's place: Ruby, Java, iPhone, Inviite, NoSQL, author, other buzzwords, lurker.

    Dan Novak

    e-Learning developer, recently moved here from Mystic, CT. I work with a lot of technologies, and hungry to learn more. Specializing mostly in SCORM and AICC, have a lot of experience forcing courses to play nice with Learning Management Systems (LMSes) like Plateau, SumTotal, and Oracle iLearning. Getting my feet wet in C# and ASP.NET in my new role, along with more advanced OOP in ActionScript. Got a hosting account supporting JSP, but haven't figured out what I want to do with it yet. Was playing wth Drupal and other PHP things, but my heart's not really in it.

    I'm a Portland-based UX designer. In 1983 I was bitten by a radioactive Macintosh mouse. I think about UX and IxD in ways that would make your mother blush.
