I’m Jonathan Rothwell, CompSci student, imported Londoner and general shambles, and rothwell.im is my personal Web site.
I am studying for a BSc in Computer Science at the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS, to its friends) at Queen Mary, University of London.
I’m also a hobbyist writer of fiction, and a regular writer of the
drivel posts you see on this site. You’ll also note that I don’t write about myself in the third person.
In a sentence, I’m a humanist, a feminist, a gamer, a realist, and an old-fashioned nerd with a passion for science fiction.
I can be found on:
There’s also a separate @rothwellim Twitter account if you’d prefer to follow that.
The Octopress theme in use is a modified version of the default theme. Posts which are prefixed on the home page, archives and in the RSS feed with a
[LINK] prefix are part of the link log (or, if you prefer, the linked list.) These are a collection of links to other web sites, usually accompanied by an un-funny, pithy comment of some description.
There is no automatic commenting system on this web site—this is why.
The best way to contact me is through e-mail: contact me at
j at rothwell full stop im (substituting the words for punctuation marks, where necessary, to prove that you’re a human and not a spam harvester.)
I am very unlikely to answer your mail if you ask me to “fix your computer.” Sorry.
