I live in New York. I am a CTO of a software company called Magic Works. Mostly, I write programs that try to trade on the stock market. I've been programming for over 16 years now. My real specialty is algorithms.
I have several LJ weblogs. One is a personal journal in Russian: alexeilebedev. Another is a comminity called self_similar, mostly about programming language design.
I often comment other people's journals as alexeilebedev, since that is my paid account. Keeping two journals is rather confusing, but that's the only way for me to communicate both with Russian- and English-speaking friends. One bi-lingual journal would probably be annoying to both groups.
