Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Greetings!

This thread will be for everyone who is so inclined to tell us about yourself, and what brought you to this forum. Also, please feel free to share any particular expertise you may have, academic background, and so on.

As for me, I have a doctorate in psychology, and am a licensed psychotherapist. In addition to psychology, I have two main scientific interests: Cosmology and Evolution.

I belong to two organizations, one is the Planetary Society (Planetary Society) and the other is The National Center for Science Education (NCSE) a group of scientists devoted to protecting public school science programs from the encroachment of Creationism/"Intelligent Design".

I look forward to learning about the rest of you, and I hope you enjoy the Science and Technology Forum.

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Hello there!

I'm a Political Sciences student in my fourth year. My plans include a future in Law School...Hopefully! I have an interest in learning about myself, the world around me, and the universe and I look foward to reading what comes up in this forum that provides me knowledge and opportunity for reflection.

P.S. I'm also a technology wh*re!

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

I've always liked science, with a strong preference for biology (epidemiology fascinates me.)

My degree is in Information Science (Computers) with a double in Psychology. So I have a foot in both camps here.

Could you fix the fact that I erased the show desktop button from my quick launch bar?

It was an accident.

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

make a short cut to C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

If you are logged in as something other than Administrator, the substitute that login name for Administrator above.

then drag the short cut to your start bar

So, what the hell have ya been doin' wastin' time in the Voyagers' Forum?!?!



I'm a college drop out that used to actually have an interest in biology up until takin' Professor Tuff's (yeah, it was pronounced "tough") Intro to Bio at SWT. That class whipped the curiousity out of my system.

I read the occasional article about stuff, and my usual reaction is, "Damn, that's cool."

:thumbsup:

I also lack degrees, but I'm trying to get one in Engineering Physics.

I don't know jack about gadgets or astronomy, though.

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

I hold 2 degrees. Bachelor of Science in Computer Science specializing in Scientific Computing, and Bachelor of arts with a major in English. Guess which one I plan to use in this forum?

And I have a passing interest in pretty much all sciences.

No certifications, but I've prepared for the A+ certs a half dozen times, and might actually take the test soon. I'm also preparing for the WebSphere Admin, and Java certifications.

I got a BScience in Advanced Physics, and a BEngineering in mechatronics (or in more informal term: robotics). I'm currently in my fourth year of PhD doing Mechatronics Engineering, specialised in Machine Learning.

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Y'know, the writer in me wants to correct that subject line.

My interest in Mars, MER, and planetary exploration is part of what brought me here, methinks. However, I also have a bachelors in theatrical sound design, which brought with it quite a bit of practical experience in acoustics, audio technology, and audiology. I've even been on a team that installed a new recording studio for the theatre.

As for organizations, outside of the seemingly requisite professional organizations (Science Fiction Writers of America and the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers) I'm also a member of the Mars Society and the Planetary Society.

I've studied robotics in order to build a replica of K-9 from Dr. Who that actually is able to move and speak, built my own desktop computer from the ground up (and it works better than this laptop most of the time), and okay, basically I'm a tech-head. I also try to make a point of making all of the tech in any Trek story I write based firmly in science.

I look forward to hearing about everyone else.

Sweet! Can you build me a TARDIS soon?
