Status: Vacationing in the United Kingdom until July 22.

Hello and welcome! I've been a resident of California my whole life and am currently attending the University of California, Berkeley, majoring in electrical engineering and computer science.

I stumbled upon and became a member of Wikipedia in January 2003 when the 'pedia made front page news (http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=03/01/22/0258226&mode=nested) on Slashdot. I was swept up in the ease with which anyone could contribute to articles. While editing this encyclopedia can be frustrating at times, it's grown on me as a very worthwhile endeavor that someday (hopefully in my lifetime!) will be an invaluable repository of human knowledge. While the 'pedia is still in its infancy and has a lot of maturing to do, I see every day's worth of edits like a mathematical function approaching a limit. Every day, this project gets better, but it will always have room to improve, and as time goes to infinity, this encyclopedia will approach perfection.

Interests include all things astronomical, U.S. presidential election, U.S. presidential election, 2004, President of the United States of America, United States Cabinet (and all department pages), pages relating to California, and The Simpsons and related subpages. While EE and CS are my primary areas of study, I humbly consider myself not to be an expert in these fields, and therefore I refrain from making any drastic changes to articles pertaining to those subjects.

I am also a fan of information in general and thus the Wikipedia is a natural home for me. I like facts and numbers, especially since they are non-partisan and objective for the most part, and thus, I like to include them as much as possible in the framework of the NPOV policy.

I have an Are You A Wikipediholic score of 72. (Thus, I am an addict, but it shouldn't be fatal.)
