Name:mdlbear
Birthdate:Mar 13
Location:Freeland, Washington, United States of America
Website:steve.savitzky.net
The Mandelbear has been kicking around the computer industry long enough to have been in grad school when the ARPANET was set up. The name comes from the Middle-Sized Bear (in the last section, "Conversation with the Middle-Sized Bear", of Cordwainer Smith's story "Mark Elf") meeting up with the Mandelbrot Set in alt.callahans. The result, an infinitely fuzzy, vaguely ursine fractal, can be seen in the default icon. The Bear can also be found at steve.savitzky.net and computer-curmudgeon.com.

About the Blog
Many of my posts (the ones with subjects starting with "Done") include extracts from my "to.do" log. You can read about "How to.do it".

I expect that a few people will still be reading [livejournal.com profile] mdlbear on LJ (mdlbear.livejournal.com). Everything I post here is crossposted there (for the moment), but comments have been turned off and redirected here. I have reading lists on both sites, and read comments both places; anyone who turns off comments on LJ -- thank you, by the way -- will be dropped in favor of their DW account.

Pronouns he/him/his; also answers to singular they/them/their.
