• About Me

    I’m an opinionated Grumpy Old Man. I enjoy the intellectual give and take that goes along with that, but have very little patience for stupid people (Note: there is a big difference between “stupid” and “educated”. Some of the stupidest people I’ve ever met have a PhD…). Beside arguing, I like to build things in almost any media. Right now I’m mostly building in wood, Lego, and a bunch of different electronic media. I teach in a number of different venues - from preschool all the way through graduate school. Subjects range from talmud to neuroscience to engineering.

    For fun, I like to bash people with swords (OK, so they’re made of foam. It’s still fun). Although I spend a lot of my time in a wheelchair, I manage to keep pretty active (Like bashing people with swords). I am a libertarian, and have a hard time finding anything good to say about government or politicians. OK, politicians might make good sausage, but that's about as good as it gets.

Another New Blog: Behind The Iron Desk – Teaching in Modern America

Well folks, in the spirit of subject-specific blogs, I’m going to start doing the whole teaching blog bit over at Behind The Iron Desk. In case you didn’t notice, Ask Dr. Science has also moved to Ask Dr. Science, but of course, I’ll still be taking Dr. science questions here (the answers will be at the new site though).
Share and enjoy

  1. GREAT! Two MORE blogs to add to my feed!

    Just kidding – I’m looking forward to the ride!

  2. Your opinions are caustic, delivered with blistering brevity, and spot-on. I dearly with you were wrong about anything you’ve said, but you’re not; fact is, as a teacher I do it for the classroom interaction, for the challenge of making students see connections and learn to see them without my help, but the pay is obnoxiously low and the students are so disengaged sometimes that I find a thrum of anger unlderlying a lot of my teaching. Having said that, I have no intention of becoming part of that appalling statistic.

    I am glad to have your new blog (cool name, btw!) as a part of regular reading. Have at it!
