I am currently a student at MIT, studying physics. I will graduate in 1997.
In 1994 I left MIT to start a company, net.Genesis. They do server side
software tools for web developers. I have since returned to MIT to finish my degree.
While at MIT (the first time), I was one of the three members of the Student Information
Processing Board (SIPB) who set up www.mit.edu in the spring of 1993.
I now live in East Cambridge, but I have lived all over the place
during my career at MIT including MacGr
Maison Française. I still spend time at LMF whenever I get
Most of my time, these days I spend at MIT either in SIPB, at the
Media Lab or at French House (during the year).
research on web growth is continuing. The comprehensive list is temporarily unavailable. Expect it's return by the beginning of the summer. Also, see the most
recent report on the growth of the web.
I have also recently taken to messing around with Java a lot. I have
a Java Page which
has some of the various Java stuff I've done. See the Java Home Page for more info.
I work at the MIT Media Lab, in the Physics and Media group.
We do some of the coolest, strangest stuff of any research lab I've
ever known. I am currently working on a project called PAN, which
deals with intrabody signaling through low intensity electrostatic
fields. There is a movie of my advisor,
Niel using the prototype.
Swing dancing, physics, perl,
Other interests include music (Beatles, TMBG, Erasure, Billy Joel, Moxy
Fruvous, Bulgarian State Vocal Choir, balroom dance music, others...),
french, um... other stuff too. :-)
- Swing Dancing and Ballroom Dance in
- I'm actually getting around to doing some of this on occasion.
I'm having fun. The Total
Swing site was set up by a couple of friends. It's pretty cool. I also dan
ce at the
MIT Ballroom Dance
- This was/is my major, but since I do computer related stuff almost
exclusively now, this is more of a 'personal itnerest'. My research
interests have included particle physics (particularly flavor changing
color currents in K+ decays), and astrophysics (particularly
gravitational lenses, Koronis group asteroids, and image analysis)
- I write a lot of perl scripts. A lot (hundreds that I've saved). I
consider myself a very proficient perl programmer, but don't hold it
I don't mind getting random personal email, so feel free to send me mail. Or if you're in the Boston
area, call me :-). Meeting people in real life is generally much more
interesting than over the net.
Other Random Stuff I've done on the web
A long time ago, Jake and I had some adventures. We put them on the
web. Check out Matthew and Jake's
Adventures, one of the early pieces of interactive web fiction.
(I've done lots more, I just haven't yet had time to put it here...)
