Ellipsix Informatics is a resource for the creation, investigation, and dissemination of information about modern science and technology.
So what does that actually mean? A lot of random things, actually. There's no particular guiding principle or theme to this site, except that most of what I put up has something to do with physics, computer science, information theory, or something else I happen to find interesting. For most of its history the site has primarily been a platform to release whatever software I work on that I think might be of some use to anyone (or not). Recently, since I realized that I really don't have any significant amount of time to devote to pure programming, I've added some forms of smaller contributions, most of which show up as postings.
I am currently a graduate student in physics at Penn State University, although I do this whole web development/open-source programming thing as a hobby. I started out with Java around 1999, and more recently I've been doing a lot of work with Python, although I do occasionally dabble in C/C++, PHP, Perl, shell scripting, and other languages.
I mostly do this for fun although I'm never opposed to making a bit of money from my hobbies, so if you have a paying job for a web developer or programmer-at-large, I'm open! See the contact page if you want to get in touch.
