I'm a builder. I make things, organize things, assemble things, understand things.
I've also come to realize over the years that the best way to make the world better
is to cooperate with others, encourage others to cooperate, and help others be more
awesome. Many things in life are positive sum games, and since I do things for the
long haul, I prefer to cooperate over defecting.
I obtained a degree in electrical engineering with minors in math, physics, and CS in 1997.
In spite of my hardware background, I ended up being better at software, and have been
working on the software side ever since. Software allows me faster and more interesting
expression than physical things, but I still work with matter from time to time.
In my spare time, I sometimes play bass and sing in a cover band; I also run an online
game server with a rather large contingent of visually impaired players. I have a
black belt in Shaolin-Do Kung Fu, and have maintained a good portion of the material
even though I'm no longer near a school.
Writings and Projects
- Louisville ShaolinDo
This is the school where I got my black belt. It's a small school run mostly by an
extended family of brothers, and it has a long history with very good, very well
trained instructors. They're not slave drivers, but they expect a lot and you can
go far as long as you're willing to put in the time. If you're in that area, you
may want to take a look.
EFNI is a vast treasure trove of hard science information on the combat and ship
specifications in the Babylon 5 universe. Keep in mind that the maintainer of the site
knows english only as a second language - don't let the broken grammar fool you.
This site contains without a doubt some of the most technically sound,
hard-science descriptions of the technology in the Babylon 5 universe I've ever seen.
This is a harrowing tale
of my exploits and abuse of the final level of this fun little flash game.
A free US radar map that doesn't suck
This was the most useful when I lived in Kentucky and New York and wanted to watch out
for weather weirdness.
This has lots of cool stuff, and some wierd/cool stories. The
Fine Structure novel is easily my favorite.
Collaborative Fiction in a slow-bootstrap singularity future. I ended up learning a lot
about wormhole physics and general relativity from here.
The New York Magician
This is a novel I found on Everything2, written by
