The way I count it, this is my third attempt at keeping a web log. Fourth if you count that website I made for reviewing PDAs, which I mostly used to chit-chat. So you, kind reader, will have to forgive me if I seem a little bit disillusioned about the entire process. Nonetheless, here I am. I thought that I'd again join the ranks of the "bloggers".

So, after that little introduction, perhaps you want to know who I am and why you should read this blog? The short answer is that you probably shouldn't; it promises to be boring and sparsely populated. The longer answer is that my name is James Brown and I am a student at Harvey Mudd College, a small science-oriented college in Claremont, California, although I originally hail from Massachusetts. To sum up the most important bits, I'd say that I'm a GNU/Linux-using hacker Democrat musician. Yeah...

If you're still reading at this point, you must be either very bored or very dedicated. Either way, enjoy my random thoughts. Oh yeah, and about the title. It's just an S-expression that yields a fairly useless anonymous function. You can expect to see plenty of miscellaneous programming references here, too.
