It was such an honor to be interviewed by the lovely Traci Toguchi at the It Won’t Stay in Vegas CES Party. We met earlier this year in Hawaii at the [re]think: Hawaii conference! It’s always nice running into her at these geek events. ;)
This video was created using the very cute easy-to-keep-in-your-purse Creative Labs Vado HD Pocket Video Camcorder, 3rd Gen and the always useful Joby Gorillapod Tripod!
Many thanks to Albertech.net for the video and photo!
I’m very thankful that Giannii from DISQUS asked me to do a short interview with him. Thanks for this opportunity! You can also read the original interview at DISQUS’ blog.
Daynah. A tech geek who loves programming, designing, and digital photography.
So what do you do for a living?
Iâ€™m a Programmer Analyst at the University of California, Riverside, doing mainly LAMP development, help desk, as well as staff training on various software. LAMP development means linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP (or another programming language). In my case, itâ€™s PHP.
Outside of programming, what are you passionate about?
Iâ€™m very passionate about new technologies, especially in social media, gadgets, apps, and new ways of gaming. Another one of interests is scrap booking! I take a ton of photos, so I need a creative way to display them all.
Have you always been involved with technology?
Not always. Not until I got my first computer in my junior year of high school. But even then, it wasnâ€™t apparent that my life would take the technology route. I went off to college and majored in Computer Science, and thatâ€™s when I my love for web design flourished.
How did you find Disqus?
I found Disqus through FriendFeed.
What do you find appealing about Disqus?
Itâ€™s familiar and very easy to use!
What was the first computer you owned?
It was a Packard Bell, running Windows 3.1. I later got a Windows 95 upgrade CD about 2 weeks after.
If you could add one feature to Disqus, what would it be?
Thatâ€™s such a hard question. I like software that keeps it simple, and thatâ€™s what Disqus does. The addition of multiple logins is great, as well as the â€œlikeâ€ feature. I canâ€™t think of anything else that would make it better. But if I do, Iâ€™ll definitely let you know.
