Attention administrators: Please do NOT remove edit histories of any vandalism on this page.

This is a user page. Don't expect it to be too meaningful.


This is not a paper encyclopedia. Take advantage of this; be bold, be prolific, link extensively, and be diligent in editing. The wikipedia is a colony; an emergent property arising from the effort of thousands, and eventually millions, of chumps who like to work for free.

In accepting the infinite nature of knowledge, wikipedia is, while not accepting the theoretical goal of completeness, the first project to have any hope whatsoever of achieving it. If you don't mind the gross inaccuracies that are inevitable when an encyclopedia is edited by unqualified people.


siafu: n see driver ant Any one of a number of species of ants native to Africa (equivalent to South American Army ants) that exist in colonies of up to 22 million individuals (recorded). Although completely blind, swarms of siafu can travel at speeds up to 20 meters per hour (net). No other insect has a greater impact on its local environment. Siafu are the only insect known to have actually killed and consumed human beings, albeit only those for other reasons unable to escape (e.g., babies, the infirm).


I am currently a PhD candidate in Astrodynamics and Satellite Navigation at the University of Colorado at Boulder, specializing in novel GPS applications, particular radio occultation. I have a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology (conf. May '09), and have a B.A. in English from Reed College (conf. May '02). From 2003-2005, I was employed as MIS and client services coordinator at a community mental health center in Skokie, Illinois.
