I work at the University of New South Wales, where I use Ruby to analyze biological data.

In part of my spare time, I work on fun programming projects. One was trying to analyze what underlies Wikipedia's Get to Philosophy game. I also worked on one called the "Small Eigen Collider".

I'm currently learning Japanese, and I'm an active participant in lang-8.com, a website where you write journal entries in a language you're learning, and get corrected by native speakers of that language. In return, you correct people writing entries in your native language. Recently, I've been asking a few questions prompted by slightly incorrect English I've encountered on lang-8.

@Amphiteóth I asked this question hoping to refute that person's statement.

@IndianJo the translation came from twitter.com/BenjaminNorton/status/553615451860008960, which used asterisks to avoid the n word.

@Aerovistae I remember you too! I'm glad to hear that you switched languages - I was worried you left JLU because of problems with the community!
