I am a graduate student in computer science at University of Kentucky. I was previously an undergraduate at UK, where I obtained a B.S. in mathematics and a B.S. in computer science.

Email: (spam will be dealt with; we have guns).
Real Name: Neil Moore.
Phone Number: (859)/258-9371. Telemarketers will die.

Politics: individual liberty and equality, heavy corporate and economic regulation, and high taxes all around. I am distrustful of neoliberal economic policy, especially when it involves the developing world. I do not have a problem with capitalism itself, as long as measures are in place to limit the unequal distribution of wealth. Whatever my political views on a subject may be, my selfishness, complacency, intellectual curiosity, and fatalism combine to keep me from complaining too much about regimes with at least a moderate amount of social and intellectual freedom.

. . . That's when I don't stop to think about it. When I do, I just get depressed. Critical Theory and postmodernism mix about as well as Absolut and Seconal.

All y'alls is cool. Those I've met, those I've talked to, those whose nodes I have read, those who have read my nodes, and those I have yet to interact with. Community doesn't even begin to describe it.

On the subject of a 19-inch monitor versus a laptop LCD:

<dannye> My eyes have likely seen more horrible shit than yours, Crux. Thus, I need bigger to make it seem real to me.

The pages bookmarked below are for the most part pages that I found to be emotionally moving. They are, in general, not factual---there are way too many good factual nodes for me to even attempt bookmarking them.
