My name is Ben Clark.  I'm Wayfair engineering's Chief Architect.  The views presented are not the views of my employer.  This blog is a combination of announcements, medium-to-long-form tech things, and personal/family items.  The Dalton is my other half, Abbe Dalton Clark.  Death before divorce is not just a catch phrase for a healthy marriage, it's a DNS configuration. And then there's the resume-ish stuff, because Linkedin really can't be the thing that takes that over once and for all, can it?

Techie links--public speaking, interviews, code, writing, etc.:

I can be reached at ben at daltonclark dot com.

This is also my family blog, where I talk up the various activities of my wife, Abbe Dalton Clark. She does software and IT project management and data processing with Microsoft tools, and she blogs occasionally here.

I have some other interests. I speak French and know some Persian and Arabic. A few years ago I translated 5 articles in Encyclopedia of the Archaeology of Ancient Egypthttp://amzn.to/1wc1Xcb.  I also translated Louis Massignon's Essay on the Origins of the Technical Language of Islamic Mysticism from the French. It's out of print now, but a used copy becomes available on Amazon from time to time. I have a couple of author's copies, so you can write me if you're interested.
