I've only had a very small amount of formal education in computer programming, but over the years I've been teaching myself more, using the wonderful knowledge pool provided by free and open source software. And some books.
I'm primarily interested in Lisp (mainly of the Emacs variety) and Python.
As of 2010, I'm a Debian Developer, maintaining the xword and planner-el packages.

something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesome returns of
conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.
-- Mark Twain
