Work: Linked-In Endorsements

I am on Linked-In (a business-oriented social networking site) at this URL: http://www.linkedin.com/in/darrencook. (If you do not know me please do not send an invite: I only link to people I've either worked with or have known for some time.)

I have a few endorsements there from people I have worked with. I am not certain of the ethics of reproducing them here when people wrote them specifically for the Linked-In context, so for those I have decided to show them with names and company names elided (if you see your comment here and either wish it removed, or your name added back in, let me know).

"Darren has worked for our Japan based company Intisar Technology KK for over three years and built our initial system for Go Mobile (see www.gomobile.co.jp). His skill set extends beyond technical as he also provides us with valuable input when assisting us with solutions for our business based on a budget. Darren is professional and extremely self-motivated and is capable of working on complex large scale projects with tight deadlines." (June 7, 2007)
“Darren provided some very valuable software consultancy for us. He is clearly an expert in his field and helped us considerably in localisation of products into Japanese language. It would be a pleasure to work with him again.” (June 6, 2007)
"Darren has worked on a number of projects with [us]. He does excellent work. I can recommend Darren without hesitation. " (March 7, 2004)
"I've worked with Darren on a variety of projects for our e-Commerce and corporate websites. He knows his field and is always quick to provide over-the-top service. Darren is a real pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to any of my linked friends." (March 1, 2004)
"Darren is the creator of the highly capable mail broadcasting system, PEP that FlyingColor Group offers to clients. While at FlyingColor, I interacted daily with Darren for operation of the application. His knowledge of programming, database and server environments is vast, and the responsiveness with which he responds to issues and requests is truly confidence-inspiring." (February 29, 2004)
"I have known Darren for many years and I highly recommend him as a web programmer/developer. Darren is a great guy to work with, and brings a lot of experience to the table, especially in multi-byte (Japanese), multi-lingual sites, and sophisticated flash programming." (February 29, 2004)
"I had the chance to work with Darren for over 3 years and I must say I have never been displeased. Darren is professional and of good counsel, putting work integrity and security before any other considerations. I really had a good and profitable time working with him." (February 29, 2004)
"Darren is not only a very competent programmer, he is also hard working and has a conscientious work ethic. Not a frequent quality in programmers, Darren approaches projects with both a technical and business point of view." (March 22, 2004)
"Darren built an effective and cost-efficient infrastructure around Open Source software. He was able to communicate well with all layers of the organization--spanning the range from designers, to technical staff, and to management." (March 14, 2004)
"Darren was always extremely dedicated and conscientious, no matter what project he was involved with. He thrived on a challenge, and always worked as a team player." (March 2, 2004)
"Darren Cook has always been a professional programmer and even with urgent requests he came up with appropriate advice/perfect programs. He also developed an one-to-one email marketing program and by him we could bring much profit to our company. Moreover he is bilingual and familiar with Japanese culture." (March 1, 2004)
"As part of the core management team [of FlyingColor], Darren's advice on strategic application of technology contributed immensely to the company's rapid growth. Specific activities where his contributions where exemplary included technical research, project scoping, programming, documentation and quality assurance for a varied range of marketing initiatives."
