About him

He likes mathematics (especially anything relating to very complex algebra, geometry, calculus, and mathematical proofs) and is very good at it. He also likes computer science, especially robots and anything having to do with artificial intelligence or biotechnology. Space travel and space exploration is also interesting to him, as is energy, the natural environment, and various types of cars, his favorite being the Tesla Model S. He really likes theme parks around the world, and his favorites are Disney parks and Universal Studios parks.

So it may surprise the reader that he actually edits articles about public transportation, other infrastructure, and architecture. (He also sometimes edits theme park articles and other interesting topics that are either in the news or discovered by happenstance.)

These are among the other things he does:

  • Copy editing
  • Adding information
  • Anti-vandalism

Fun

A redditor and a Star Wars fan, this epic genius is. He also likes to do math in his free time since he is very good at it (you know, stuff like theorems, and he also likes proofs.)[e]

Gallery of a fall from grace

From Rampart (film):

An attempt to market the film via the social news website Reddit went "horribly wrong"[1] according to Forbes. A popular feature of Reddit is the "AMA" section (short for 'ask me anything'), where notable people engage in Q&A sessions with the Reddit community.[2] Within this format, Harrelson agreed to answer questions from the users of the site, who were disappointed by his answers, and his apparent misunderstanding of the format,[3] resulting in some of the site's users vowing to "boycott the flick".[4] CNET characterized one of Harrelson's responses as "sheer oozing, all-about-me-ism".[5] Josh Feldman with MediaIte shared the following perspective: "a proxy for the actor basically gave vague answers to half of the questions and in-no-way subtle plugs for his upcoming movie Rampart to the other half. It was a public relations nightmare, and while it certainly raised awareness about the movie, it definitely backfired." Feldman went on to say about the incident, "it came across as robotic and represented an inability to connect with people when it should have been insanely easy to do so." Feldman summarized the lesson learned by stating the following, "When you’re doing an AMA on Reddit, you drop the act and engage with real people. Some will be fans, some won’t, but if you’re just honest and it doesn’t seem like your answers have been planned out, people will respect you for it."[6]
