Using Gnu emacs since 1996. I have hacked perl, C++ and Common Lisp for food.
In 2003 I started a doctoral program in Communication (http://communication.ucsd.edu) and Science Studies (http://sciencestudies.ucsd.edu) at the university of california, san diego. I want to develop a peer to peer tool for the exchange of arguments and positions between social theorists using DistributedEmacsLisp. I think disciplinary boundaries suck.
I kept a blog last summer about social theory. http://signprocess.blogspot.com
