Some Software and Web Sites I've Written
- Auto-Acronym. Automatic generation of acronyms from source text.
- Better File Cabinet, open-source wiki-database software. This page runs on BFC.
- LaTeX Tidy, open-source Perl hack to clean up LaTeX files
- TextMate, a great Mac OS X text editor with special features for special text (e.g. programming languages). I wrote the initial Perl and LaTeX bundles, along with various other utilities.
- Reading Old Microsoft Word 5 Files in Mac OS X. I'm so proud to have figured it out, I had to record the details.
- Unwritten Rules, an attempt to collate all those unwritten rules of various sports and activities.
Every now and then someone asks what my Erdos number is, and more rarely, what my Bacon number is. Go to Wikipedia if you need definitions. You can decide for yourself if my numbers are well-defined, as I use math education papers to calculate Erdos number and TV to calculate Bacon number. (Calculations done May 2010.)
My Erdos Number is 4: I coauthored with Diane Resek. / Diane Resek coauthored with Léon Henkin MR0366659 (51 #2906) / Léon Henkin coauthored with Alfred Tarski MR0124250 (23 #A1564) / Alfred Tarski coauthored with Paul Erdös1 MR0008249 (4,269b).
My Bacon Number is 3: When I was in the 7th grade, I was a regular member of a large kid panel on a TV show called Livewire hosted by Fred Newman. Fred Newman (I) was in Men in Black (1997) with Steve Rankin. Steve Rankin was in Trapped (2002) with Kevin Bacon.
Thus my Erdos-Bacon Number is 7.
