I’m a geeky, skeptical college student at the UW Madison. Formally I’m studying economics and computer science, informally I’m learning about many more things. I’m a naturalist, atheist, rationalist, and a transhumanist, and the main purpose of this blog is to provide me with a public forum to explore the world from those starting points.

    Your blog is interesting – I think you should add stuff to this to tell us at least a little about who you are!

    I think the definitive article on why “the brain is not like a computer” is a stupid thing to say has yet to be written, but the short version is this: a car crash isn’t like a computer either, but that doesn’t stop us using computers to simulate them.
