Ed Borasky - freelance developer for lots of stuff besides Twitter, but I spend most of my time these days doing Twitter. Main languages are Perl (Net::Twitter is my friend!) and R, with Ruby sometimes when I need to write code other people can read. ;-) Main areas of interest - natural language processing, statistics, applied math, Linux performance engineering, social media analytics / marketing tools, algorithmic composition of music.
What have I built? Some public stuff is at http://github.com/znmeb/Twitter-API-Perl-Utilities and http://github.com/znmeb/Ruby-Streaming-Testing. What do I most want to see added? Well, right now, I'd mostly like to see Twitter put up a public page with all the "gee-whiz" statistics - how many tweets per hour are being created, how many searches are being done, how many people are joining Twitter per day, etc. I'm happy with the API itself. -- M.
