Resume of Michael A. Patton
517 Streeter Hill Rd
Whitingham, VT 05361
I have over 35 years experience with the net (I can't say "with The
Internet" since it didn't have that name 35 years ago), and a little
more experience with non-networked computers (about 40 years). I have
used many computer languages and as a
result, I find I can learn most any computer language enough to start
writing real programs in a few hours to a day. My experience includes
a wide variety of hardware and
My main areas of expertise are in Internet routing and architecture,
especially design of large networks or using all the tools of network
design to achieve special goals, load balancing, traffic management.
This can be applied to core network engineering as well as engineering
of interconnect plans, server farm performance, or distributed server
I am presently interested mainly in additional
Many large networks (both ISPs and
corporate networks) don't really
have demand for a full-time routing guru, but could use one
occasionally, e.g. for a one week project once or twice a year, and
occasionally for larger projects. This is the void I am looking to
fill. While I am located in the Boston area, many of these things can
be done by E-mail and remote control, so actual location is not
important. And I also enjoy travelling.
I'm also willing to consider other offers for exceptionally
interesting (to me) positions.
Although not strictly part of my resume, you might be
interested in looking at my other collections of
web pages, which give additional
insight into my eclectic interests.
