I hereby hazard a guess, and make it known to you at the same time, that you happen to be someone I’ve not chatted with in too many years now (16 maybe? nice round power of two that).
Should my guess be wrong, I still share the comment that your blog has proven quite interesting.
Should my guess be right, I can’t help but wonder, amusingly, “Are you still wearing the *same* fedora?”.
The website entry I provide prolly shares more info than you want to know, if I’m wrong about who you are, and likely raises one of your eyebrows in its characteristic, curious manner should I be right.
Ah-hah! There you are. I was just unpacking some boxes from my latest move, and I found your red origami T-Rex, with the little white claws. I wondered what you were up to [and whether you were a regular reader of xkcd, actually…]
To answer the questions: Hi, yes, it’s me. I’m on fedora number 5, I think, although the labcoat is long gone. Yes, that’s my eyebrow…
Hope your life has gone well in the intervening time. MIT certainly strikes me as a good place to land for you. I’ve got to get through the semester grading, and then I’ll get to exploring your website; thanks for stopping by here!
