About

Former Community Manager at Stack Exchange (August 2013-November 2017). My posts from before or after that time period (and, like, a bunch of the ones from during it, too) should not be considered "official" in any way.


Joel: I have all these opinions ... and no outlet for them!
Josh: Have you tried yelling them at the Internet?
Joel: Almost exclusively! And yet problems still persist!

-"The Grand Opining", HijiNKS ENSUE, by Joel Watson


"On two occasions I have been asked, 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' ... I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question."

-Charles Babbage

-Douglas Hofstadter, Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid
