PersonalCheck out my blog: dalebeermann.com.
I am currently working at Sharendipity, a small startup in Madison, WI that I co-founded in Sep. 2006.
My past side project: MyOutdoors.net.
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2002 with a BS in Computer Science.
ProjectsHere are some interesting projects I am or have been working on:
ResearchLast year I worked on a distributed event system for Chromium called CRUT, the Cluster Rendering Utility Toolkit. The event system has been included in Chromium since version 1.1. It's one component in what will eventually be a system capable of cluster-based remote rendering.
My Master's project, Scalable, Robust Visualization of Very Large Trees, was a better architecture for rendering
very large trees (almost 15 million nodes) in a scalable,
robust manner. The work was originally started by Tamara Munzner as TreeJuxtaposer.
My work identified key problems and limitations with the old
software and inceased the size of trees that could be handled
from 750,000 up to 15 million. This work will appear at Eurovis 2005.
