Patrick Killelea currently works for a major on-line brokerage, but he
won't say which one. He spends his days writing monitoring and load testing
tools, and proclaiming the web to the be the one true front end because of
its simplicity, portability, and performance. He thinks Microsoft is not to
be trusted with your back end. Patrick knows there are huge web performance
improvements yet to be realized using the details of existing open
protocols. He is a fan of T/TCP and hopes one day to set up a connection
and deliver an entire web page all in a single packet.
Patrick spends his evenings playing with his wife and kids, and is
interested in etymologies, obscure religions, and pan-seared salmon with
mixed greens and a nice merlot. He likes to get e-mail about web and Java
performance issues. Please visit his web site at patrick.net.
