A former professional geek and would-be author, now disabled (but still a hopeful author, just a lot slower).
Areas of some lay expertise include:
- Archeology (father is an assistant professor of archeology)
- neurological learning disabilities and related syndromes (such as ADHD, autism, dyslexia, Tourette's, and so on); research pursuant to my teenage diagnosis of ADD.
- "Ailments of unknown etiology" and other "wastebasket diagnosis" diseases and syndromes, particularly relating to fatigue and dizziness.
- Bisexuality and publishing - I am a former staff editor of the former international bisexual magazine Anything That Moves.
There are certain other minor areas of research I pursue from time to time (from carbon nanotubes to Hmong textiles) in pursuit of book material or just more knowledge.
I am also incapable of resisting the urge to correct spelling mistakes, let alone factual errors, and determined it was time to launch an accreditable account with Wiki for that purpose.
I'm beginning to think we need a "Disability project", as many of the disability-related sites on Wikipedia could use rather a bit of cleanup and organization. I'm not sure how to start such a thing, nor do I have the energy to pursue it right now - or to be honest, I'd probably lose my temper at someone if I did try it. However, you can vote for it as a project, or even volunteer, here in the new projects list.
