Budding Bayesian, forgetful physicist, pragmatic programmer, hopeful hacker, mistaken musician, whimsical writer, and atypical animator, I am.
The Novice Oof has a tendency to whine on his blog and manage not to save the world; his weaknesses are homework and the mundane tasks like sleeping. Will eat anything, but will prefer science fiction. Is of type ‘jack of all trades’.
A: These are Questions That I Think Should Be Frequently Asked Questions
A: Because no one normally asks me questions other than “can you help me with my homework?”, and by golly I’m not handling that one on this list.
A: Like many names, this one grew out of my sordid past, except it has nothing to do with killing a man with a single thumb. Back in the 8th grade, I read the UNIX Koans and soon afterwards took on the moniker Master Foo. However, sometime in high school I realized that I was no master of anything, much less the UNIX command line, and decided that instead of looking for an entirely new moniker, I would just reverse everything: hence, The Novice Oof was born. I kept it throughout the years because it’s fairly unique, and handles work best when unique.
A: The sexy, sexy curve of exponential growth, of course
A: Of course! Doing things with other people is cool, especially cool things. Getting paid while doing those cool things is even better: mad science doesn’t pay for itself, you know.
A: But of course.
A: Everything textual posted by me is CC licensed (unless it belongs rightly under some open documentation license, in which case I’ll probably say so), unless otherwise stated (most of my code has BSD-licenses attached to it, or MIT, or whatever I feel like slapping on it at the moment). If you do anything with my stuff, it’d be cool if I knew about it, so feel free to drop me a line.
There are oodles of ways to talk to me, but if you want to reach me as quickly as possible email would be your best bet: you can mail me at gmail as thenoviceoof
