// Internet Duct Tape

About Me

I am a Canadian engineer with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering. I’m a fan of automation and using computers to do the heavy lifting so I don’t have to. I have the typical engineer’s desire to put a square peg in a round hole just to see if it’s possible. Internet Duct Tape is about that Frankenstein-like philosophy of making things work together that were never meant to.

I can be contacted at engtech email address

Please do not contact me with:

I am bad at replying to email in a timely fashion. Press releases and link exchanges will be marked as spam without being read. Anyone sending press releases you will be added to the Blogspammers PR Blacklist and be blacklisted from several prominent blogs.

Friending Me

I often chat away on my twitter account and find it a very informal way to communicate with other bloggers. I am also a very active delicious user and stumbleupon user.  You can follow my “life stream” on Friend Feed.

About the Blog

Internet Duct Tape reached it’s peak in February 2007 with around 120,000-180,000 page views a month. Highest peak so far is 62,000 page views in one day.

Blogging HeroesI’ve been linked to on the front page by pretty much every major blog / tech site at one time or another. Some highlights: Slashdot, Digg, Reddit, Delicious, Fark, Lifehacker, Gawker, Download Squad, Problogger, Copyblogger, Daily Blog Tips, The Blog Herald, Web Worker Daily, Pronet Advertising, Google Operating System, Lifehack.org, Coding Horror, Robert Scoble as well as several mainstream media publications. I reached the top 1400 most linked blogs according to Technorati before I gave up on their poor service.

In November 2007 I was featured as one of the 30 interviews in Blogging Heroes by New York Times bestselling author Michael A. Banks.


This blog is running the Sandbox theme on WordPress using a custom skin I created in December 2006 and reworked in July 2007 for the Sandbox Design Contest. It is called Black and Blue and Read All Over and you can download it to use it for yourself.

The icons used on my blog are from FamFamFam’s Silk icon pack.

I often use CC-licensed photos to create category headers for different post subjects. You can find credits for all of the photos I use in my post headers.

The IDT logo was created by Logo Design Works and was given to me for free thanks to Daily Blog Tips.
