Name:mdlbear
Birthdate:Mar 13
Location:Seattle, Washington, United States of America
Website:Stephen.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 Cordwainer Smith's "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.

I expect that many people will still be reading [livejournal.com profile] mdlbear on LJ (mdlbear.livejournal.com). Everything I post here is crossposted there, 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.
