Unlike music, scientific work does not come with liner notes. Perhaps it should. I work in Algorithms, a field believed by many to hold the promise of a scientific revolution. If you are a believer, no need to click here. My current interests are in the area of natural algorithms, with a focus on the emergence of life and the "curse" of mid-dimensionality.

My wife Celia is a medieval historian and the director of the TCNJ Institute for Prison Teaching and Outreach. Our children Damien and Anna work in film.

I love to write music but find little time for it. I used to blog at A Tiny Revolution about politics and music. If you've wondered why the world has become so just, prosperous, and peaceful, that's because I've explained:

  • Why Obama was wrong on Iraq.
  • Why Bach rules and the NSA wishes it did.
  • Why torture should be illegal and why humor is no laughing matter.
  • Why the American left needs a new creed. See also here and here.
  • Why the American Century ended in Iraq.
  • Why the French riots were salutary and why the US media gets France all wrong.
  • Why the children in Iraq make no sound when they fall.
  • Why anti-Americanism is not what you think and why Bush was, well, you know what he was.
