More about Eric
Hmm. I didn't really want to write a whole lot of egotistical stuff about
myself under the assumption that all of these Webfolk would really care
all that much about who I am and what I do in my
Free Time... but I have found myself irrationally and nosily wondering
the same things about the people who wrote the other homepages I've seen,
so I'm going to go ahead and be egotistical (it's fun, you know) and spew
on and on about myself. :-)
The Early Years
Yeah, I was born. In Florida, even. I hear it's a nice place from my Floridian
housemates, but I wouldn't really know, because I moved to Atlanta, Georgia,
before I had much time to remember anything. No, please don't hold that against
me. Georgia's a very nice place ... if you're white and male. (And I am, but
please don't blame me for that either -- it's really not my fault.) At any
rate, I'm glad to be in Boston now. It's usually
colder in Boston than
Atlanta, which I sort of
like. So I went through school. It seems that a lot of people (well, nerds,
anyway) want to forget about their high school years. I manage to do
this (forget, not want to) without really trying, so I'll skip that part.
Recent Stuff I came to MIT.
I really like it here -- there are a lot of intriguing people to be
with and to talk to. When I came to MIT, rush happened (Rush happens
when frosh first come to MIT), and I settled on a place called Senior
House pretty quickly. But then I decided to visit some
(Independent Living Groups) and frats, and went to
Pika, and finally
Theta. I never quite got around to leaving
:-). I spent my first year here learning a lot about myself... and found a
During the spring of my freshman year, I spent a lot of time
logged in, and mostly
lived in the
SIPB office, and was eventually
made a SIPB member.
But wait -- it gets better. October 5, 1993 (the beginning of my Sophomore
year), I asked
fascinating woman how she felt about the idea of "going out" (we both
admitted it was a very high-schoolish phrase). It worked out
But life goes on.
Since that time, I've become a
MIT SIPB Webmaster on
this server, and
a MIT AI Lab Webmaster.
I've also found I don't really have much time to write random stuff
for my web pages; this web page is a snapshot of my life from the time
I wrote this page, which was back in early 1994. My life has changed a
lot since that time. If you are really interested in knowing what my
life is like now, I suggest you approach me via zephyr or in person.
I'm notoriously bad at replying to email or letters from people who
I've never met.
