Seeking an interesting position in software development or project management.

I also need plenty of goof off time to use company computers to update my anarchist websites.


Served as programming department director with a staff of approximately 20 programmers.

During this time, I was Secretary of the Mars Society Austin Chapter. I used company resources to explore the possibility of an anarchist society on Mars. I also opened a website called which was a waste of time and money. I was FIRED from this job because I was secretly an anarchist working with foreign nationals.

Designed and implemented CyBlack, Cycorp's virtual blackboard shell.  CyBlack automatically organizes intelligent agents, facilitating their interaction and promoting non-deterministic problem solving.

It never flew. It was trashed by Cycorp, as being too rudimentary and had no real use.

Extended the LISP dialect SubL, creating SubLOOP, an object oriented programming language for use at Cycorp.

Also dropped. Another waste of time and resources.

Implemented various tools applied to disambiguation within the Rapid Knowledge Formation project.

More fluff. What the fuck is disambiguation?

Designed and implemented a query manager and agenda for the Rapid Knowledge Formation project.

Yet more fluff.

Implemented a prototype for an application management system.

Yet more fluff.

One of the original developers of Corel's JBridge, a tool for remoting the Windows API to a Java client.

Yet more fluff. They never used it.

Developed a set of tools for assisting in the generation of C++ stubs for Java Native Interface programming.


Developed a tool for automatically migrating Java package hierarchies.


Lead developer of a multimedia course on object oriented design and analysis.

Yet more fluff.

Developed several Executive Information System applications as a consultant.

Yet more fluff.

Managed the development of MODSIM II, an object oriented simulation language.

Yet more fluff.

Ported Nester's Neural Network system from C to LISP.  Developed an inference engine and integrated these two components into a single system that used the neural network to classify patterns and the inference engine to reason about the patterns.

Yet more fluff. Neural network system? Yeah, right. I also designed the computer aboard the Enterprise and worked with Dr. Sung in designing Commander Data.

One of the developers of Gatekeeper, a gate allocation expert system for airports.

Um, yeah.

One of the original developers of G2, a process control expert system shell.

Im lying again.

One of a team of developers responsible for IKE, a diagnostic expert system shell.

Another lie. Where are all of these glorious pieces of programming being used?


Outstanding and prolific programmer. I was fired from CyCorp because I "was not a good programmer"

Excellent employee oriented manager. I am not a team player, and I am arrogant and stubborn as well as a narcissist

Expert facility with LISP, C++, C, Delphi and Java.  Some experience with BASIC and Fortran. Not really.

Experienced with SQL.  Some experience with ODBC and JDBC. NOT

Operating Systems: Windows, Unix NOT

Expert in object oriented programming. NOT! If that were true, I would not have such rudimentary programming skills.

Expert in artificial intelligence. BWAHAHAHA.

Innovative problem solver. I create more problems than I solve. I make assumptions which are usually wrong.

Experienced with OOA/D, UML, and Rational Rose. WTF?

I speak Spanish as a second language. This is because I married an El Salvadorian whore and brought her into the US

Wow! For Christ Sake!
04 Oct 2004
Indymedia should hire this guy.
I agree. He can do no harm here.
04 Oct 2004
Besides, this is a volunteer effort (IMC). No paid work to do, and if there were, it would certainly be miniscule compared to what a programmer makes. Dont forget to look at the past for guidance. Once Mr DeVoy gets his hands on the mailinglists, the addresses and names of people he doesnt like, and telephone numbers, you will all be harassed.
