I am not a writer . . .

. . . in the sense of being a published author (unless you count three scientific papers and my Master’s thesis.).

Or even in the way people like Steven Den Beste or the incomparable James Lileks are. Not to mention the host of others in the blogosphere who manage to express themselves (Glenn Reynolds, the Blogfather and horseman of the Ablogalypse, is a good place to start).

On the other hand, I usually manage to conform to the conventions of standard written English grammar and orthography. Whether or not there will ever be anything here worth reading is another question.
