My personality type
CiteIt.net: Open Source Project
I’ve created an open source WordPress plugin and Python web service that allows web authors to demonstrate the context of their citations. I hope this allows credible authors to distinguish themselves from “Fake News”.
Web Material I’ve put together
- The Story of the Seven Dwarfs Mining Inc: How the Coronavirus Masked the Corporate Debt Bubble
- The Seven Dwarfs thought they had discovered an easy way to increase the stock price of their mining company, that is until an unexpected emergency struck ..
- Review: Ted Nelson’s Philosophy of Hypertext
- Ted Nelson coined the word “hypertext” in 1962 and was the original visionary behind the world wide web (what many people think of as the internet). This article reviews his Ph.D. paper, written in 2003. (~11,000 words)
- Journalists and Technologists Should Collaborate to Build More Trustworthy Media
- How technologists can build systems that allow writers to create more trustworthy content, including a description of my CiteIt.net WordPress plugin.

- Socratic Dialogue: The Consummation of Knowledge
- A little dialogue I wrote after taking an introduction to political philosophy class in college. At the time there was much talk about creating a framework for an electronic economy where “producers” would create “compelling content”, which would be “consumed” by “consumers”.
- Socratic Diaglog: Gorgias (This is not my own, but a compiled and formatted version written by Plato)
- Socrates discusses the nature of “rhetoric” and “justice” with a Sophist named Gorgias. Socrates argues that it is better to die a righteous victim than to kill, foreshadowing his own death and the death of Christ.
