About meIn the past, xmbrst received a PhD in English language and literature at the University of Michigan. In the present, he lives in New York with his wife and works toward a PhD in Computer Science. In the future, his brain will be housed in a low rent storage facility. He will be disappointed to discover that it is not actually possible to rule the world from this facility, given the low bandwidth provided to its economy vats. But he will be pleased to discover that it *is* possible to have unlimited anime about brains in vats that *do* rule the world piped into his sensory feed for only a few euros a month.
