My name is Matthew Hunt. I work in the field of remote sensing. I am an alumnus of Penn State (B.S., Physics and Astronomy, 1998) and Caltech (Ph.D., Astrophysics, 2004). I live in Croyle Township, Pennsylvania, near my hometown of Johnstown, Pennsylvania. I have also lived in Pasadena, California, Ridgecrest, California, and Lancaster, California. My username is a reference to autocross. My other hobbies include photography, birding, food, and wine, and I am a former FreeBSD committer.
- Soon there was a notation in the item that I'd written a column on Aug. 10, 2006, bemoaning the fact that my item might be deleted. Whoa, feedback loop! That was removed in short order as a "navel-gazing reference to Wikipedia."
- Yeah, I hate navel-gazing self-reference, don't you?
The title of the column was "Down with self-referential navel gazing! Or, Wikipedia and me, Part 2. And did I mention me?".
If there's anything on my Flickr photostream that you think would be valuable in Wikipedia, let me know, and I'll consider licensing it appropriately.
