About meI am a graduate student at Virginia Tech and an employee at the MITRE Corporation. For more details, have a look at my home page.

Oh, a facebook page:

And if you have a soft spot in your heart for dry academic publications, here is an ill-used and even more haphazardly-maintained page summarizing my contributions to this social decay: JA's papers.

About my libraryMy library began before I can remember... there are a number of volumes that I was given in my first year of life, which remain in my library. When departing the Northwest for Boston for college (1994), I went through my first Great Purge, selling or donating a large collection of sci-fi books.

Again, following college, I went through another purge, again getting rid of hundreds of science fiction and underused classics.

Recently, I have discovered BookCrossing, which is an excellent way of putting books into circulation while getting a little satisfaction...
