Jim Gindin

I’m Jim Gindin, a programmer living in Brighton, Michigan. I’ve always been fascinated with sports, and I’ve been designing games since I was old enough to roll dice. For a long time, I worked as a sportswriter, including six years part time at The Ann Arbor News while I worked my way through college. IBM was waiting when I graduated in 1991, and I moved to Durham, North Carolina. Three years later, I moved to the Seattle area to work for a smaller communications software company. And then I spent a year with a company called Computer Associates, a large programming house. These jobs gave me experience working with large projects. They also taught me that working as a junior member of large teams saps all the creative enjoyment out of programming.
