Philosospher, Inventor, Engineer
Welcome to my own little piece of the net. I am Sean Deely Woods. Two last names. Long story short, I was adopted. Besides, I have a folk singer and a basketball coach who are kicking my ass in the google rankings for "Sean Woods". Maybe owning http://www.sean-woods.com might help in the long run, but I digress.
While you are here don't forget to check out the rest of my website. It is a tiny misdirected website devoted to twisting linux and off the shelf components into un-natural forms using the Tcl scripting language. If you are at all interested in my "Nerd Creds", they are located here
My 13* year old daughter has her website here.
One of my featured attractions is a list of Journalisms. These are words and phrases that mangle concepts, have trickled into common use, and the only recourse is to beat anyone who uses them mercilessly.
My hobbies include science fiction, folk music, scuba diving, and computer programming. I am a NAUI Certified Wreck diver. I volunteer every year at the Philadelphia Folk Festival. I program in C an TCL/TK in may spare time. I absorb science fiction novels, and one of these day's I'm finally going to sit down and write the one that keeps playing out in my head.
In your web travels, also check out my mentee Dominic's website at http://einsteinsbreakfast.com. To be someone else's inspiration is just plain disturbing, but in a satisfying way.
And also visit my other famous disciple, Pete Stein. He essentially wrote, rewrote, and re-rewrote the Franklin Institute's workorder system. While in high school, mind you.
There are three infallible ways of pleasing an author, and the three form a rising scale of compliment: 1, to tell him you have read one of his books; 2, to tell him you have read all of his books; 3, to ask him to let you read the manuscript of his forthcoming book. No. 1 admits you to his respect; No. 2 admits you to his admiration; No. 3 carries you clear into his heart. -- Mark Twain, "Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar"
