In real life I am a programmer - mostly in Java and C++, but I've seen it all (everything from Snobol to LISP to Pascal to Fortran). I have a bachelor's degree in ComputerScience? and a Masters degree in MathematicS? that I got more or less because I thought it would be fun. I got interested in SetTheory and NumberTheory? there and have been blessed to work with some incredibly good people in that field.
I used to work in the Automotive industry, but now I work in the Telecom industry (in MichigaN?!!!?) and develop software that is used by ISPs to provision ATM switches, routers, and various other equipment and man is it a lot of fun!
I am also a ChristiaN?, and belong to the FreeMethodist? church - which is similar to the MethodisT? church, but more EvangelicaL?. If that means nothing to you, don't worry, it means nothing to me either. I tend to think along the lines of CSLewis in MereChristianity? and see our likenesses more than our differences.
Finally, I am a family man (hey, I'm in the midwest, remember?) and have a beautiful wife of 12 years and 3 kids (all boys, all 7yrs and younger). The most I can hope for is that I give them the same hunger for knowledge and love of God that was given to me in my youth.
I tend to agree, but I do wonder where we might want to draw the line (if at all). I posted in the UnitedStatesConstitution and the JapanConstitution, just on the theory that it is free and that it is useful background information.
Similarly for the Bible, I suppose. Especially if we wikify it. So when you see a character like AdaM? or JesusChrist?, you can just click to read who that person is. You could weave in and out of the text and public commentary on the text.
But what about the full text of MobyDick? Does that belong here? I'm less convinced. It might be more useful to simply point to an un-wiki copy, because permitting people to wikify that text is probably fairly pointless.
Still... this is such an exciting experiment, I'd like to see us play with everything! :-)
