Despite all the advances of recent times, the disk remains the weak link. And with the ongoing explosion in data storage as well as the massive size of modern disks, that link is growing steadily weaker. As a result, fragmentation exerts a severe toll on enterprise performance and reliability, one that cannot be remedied by manual defragmentation.
I run DaniWeb. I coded (and currently maintain) the site from scratch using PHP/MySQL/jQuery and grew it into a thriving community of over 1 million IT professionals and 10 million visitors a month, making it not only one of the largest social media websites in its niche, but one of the largest publications on the web to date. I sell advertising. I host annual events throughout Manhattan during Internet Week, Advertising Week and Social Media Week which each see an average of over 1000 attendees. I host a bimonthly meetup group for techies on Long Island and eastern Queens. I speak on panels at search engine conferences. I run a brick-and-mortar coworking community for the tech industry in Queens, NY. I multitask. I consider myself a platform creator and a community builder. I'm a super-geeky programmer with a passion for Internet marketing. I am not for hire.
