Hello!

I'm a (hopefully soon to be) computer science student. I like all things computery, but am especially interested in Ruby (+Rails), Javascript, AI and NLP. I enjoy hacking, making anything web-related and have written a couple of iPhone apps.

Other things I like:

  • Music, but especially the organ!
  • Languages: I can speak quite a bit of German and I'm a beginner in Spanish. I have a slight obsession with Duolingo

Also, before you downvote my post:

comment Electronic keyboard terms: Aftertouch vs Pressure-sensitive
@RedGrittyBrick - I think that they didn't need to mention that it didn't have "pressure sensitivity" - you only really need velocity sensitivity, aftertouch is nice but not hugely useful

comment Electronic keyboard terms: Aftertouch vs Pressure-sensitive
@RedGrittyBrick just looked it up on wikipedia - many people will loosely called velocity sensitivity pressure sensitivity... including myself - I thought they were one and the same, but obviously not... I'm pretty sure aftertouch is what I said it is though
