Thanks for checking out my site! I'm Rick. (That's me to the right). I'm a web developer at YouTube focusing on web performance and front end infrastructure. When I'm not coding or exhausting my Netflix queue, I enjoy evangelizing the magic of web performance.
I blog regularly about web performance and front end engineering and I'm the creator of two open source projects: trunk8 (an intelligent text truncation plugin to jQuery that cuts off text based on pixel width, not character count), and red dwarf (a Google Maps heatmap of GitHub repository stars).
