About me

I am a writer and software developer.

I invented/discovered antimemes. I wrote Ra, Fine Structure, The Difference and I Don't Know, Timmy, Being God Is A Big Responsibility.

I'm enthusiastic about time, time zones, time travel and calendars. I think Unicode is the best thing in computers and I believe that correctly structuring and normalising data is an important social issue. I was at one point the world authority on the true location of Springfield and may still be the world authority on destroying the Earth. If I appeared on Mastermind, my specialist subject would be Futurama. I was Time Magazine's Person of the Year in 2006.

I created HATETRIS and Base65536. I occasionally write programming tutorials. I love JavaScript and I don't care who knows.
