Building burcell.org

Welcome to bpurcell.org, the personal homepage of Brandon Purcell. I started building bpurcell.org many, many years ago to share information I ran across everyday in my role as a Support Engineer and Consultant for Macromedia/Adobe. As a support engineer and consultant I always had a lot to blog about but as I moved into managment roles at Adobe my technical content dwindled.

I currently work as the Director of Technology for Universal Mind. My primary responsiblity is managing the SpatialKey project and it has been an amazing experience. I have been spending a lot of time working with Amazon Ec2 and will share my experiences through the blog in the future. I truly believe that Cloud Computing is the IT platform of the future and we have built the SpatialKey architecture on top of Ec2.

Strange bedfellows? AOL, Microsoft, and Yahoo are teaming up to fight spam. Considering that they represent some of the largest consumer ISPs on the planet, that's a good thing. Most spam appears to be targeted at consumers, not business people. If it becomes harder to send spam to AOL and MSN customers, for example, that might be discouraging to at least some spammers.

More than anything, though, it's a great first step. The computer industry has got to come together to fight the spam scourge.
