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.

comment Do “American” military movies generally profit outside of the US?
I wonder how "Pearl Harbor" went in Japan, or other military films in the "enemy"'s country (assuming they have an active film market).

"UN*X" is now officially an operating system! (Or maybe they didn't want to use a trademark, just like the rest of us)

I used "realism" as a tag, but it's more trying to avoid being real. Any suggestions?
