About me? A Natural Philosopher is what they call people like me. I Program computers with Mathematica... I like and do quantum mechanics and cosmology. I have some reviews for Amazon in Mathematics, Physics, fiction and Movies. I'm a big Sci fi movie fan. I've spent the last 30 years as an Fractal activist and am currently a global warming news activist...a "Green". With my groups activity on the web, I have a hobby of paleoarchaeology and the study of mathematical influences on history. I organized my high school reunion 11 years ago and then, didn't go. I write poetry, short stories and fractal based jazz. I still have my draft card. Just got a gift card from the local library as runner up in their poetry contest. Have been making 3d printing models for the last few years.
Old guy who uses Mathematica: started 3d on a Radio Shack color computer in basic about 1979. I'm an Inorganic Chemist by training with physical/ quantum Chemistry. I have been doing fractals since I was using a Commodore 64 for graphics in the 80's. In the 90's I had an Amiga and discovered ray tracing and Phong shading. I'm on a couple of Macs right now and I'm getting old. TFTN was a fractal news letter I published.
Born in National city. Lived childhood mostly in La Mesa, Ca. High School in Lakeside, Ca.1964. Chemistry degree from UCLA 1968. About two years drafted in the Army and 2 semesters graduate school SDSU. Computer programming self taught 1979 on. Fractal newsletter 1993 -2003 and web page design. Number theory work 2002 to present with OEIS entries. Was a Amazon Reviewer / Vine since about 2006. Interest groups at Yahoo, Linked In and Google+ communities. Over 40 years genealogy research since the late 1960's. Researching the Bagula/ Bagola/ Plowka names from Drachhausen, Hochza in Cottbus, Brandenburg,East Germany.
