I am Zerocool

Right now I0ˆ9m coding. My mind is operating in a hyper-connected nether-realm of computer code. My physical body has withered away, leaving only my mind, communicating with the computer in object-oriented languages. I am a hacker, only responding to the name Zerocool.

Actually, I0ˆ9m not coding. I0ˆ9m taking a break to blog. For the past two hours I0ˆ9ve been working on a computer science project, an efficient C++ implementation of Skiplists.

While coding, I listen to old episodes of This American Life, a weekly radio program from WBEZ Chicago. They have most of their archives available online in RealAudio format.
I highly recommend:
The Fix Is In, about FBI informant Marc Whitacre helping to break the Archer Daniels Midland price fixing conspiracy.
Christmas and Commerce, in which David Sedaris recounts tales from his job as an elf.

By the way, Coca-Cola owns the brand "Jesus".
