Just another beer-drinking Texan with a Ph.D. in biochemistry, proficiency in Portuguese, and 160,000 miles on his bicycle. My vocation now is computer programming; my impossible mission, to make cat and Toyota Echo ownership look totally masculine. (Well, the cats are easy: I just treat 'em like horses, slapping their flanks and singing to 'em. As for the Echo, I don't know...at least it has a 5-speed manual.) My interests - machine translation of Turkic languages, the unavoidable faultiness of computer models, the once and future Yugoslavia, all the lusophone world, and pedaling up to people in other area codes and watching their eyes telegraph But you're not wearing Spandex! - are summarized at http://www.machine-altaica.com/.
