Stack Exchange employs me as a Community Manager. I've been known to respond to jericson@stackexchange.com. Alternatively, I maintain an office on chat. (Please ignore the meta cruft.)

You can read about what I've done over the years in my curriculum vitae.

On a personal note, I'm married and have three children. Our oldest son loves school, friends, games, and reading. (He can't wait to get on our LEGO® Answers site, but he's not quite old enough. My posts there are usually at his request.) Two of my children happen to have been born on the same day. I sometimes write about that experience.

Don't have time for a full review of something? Why not try my 5-second reviews?

Occasionally, I write a post for Eschewmenical.

comment Does 1st Kings say that pi = 3?
That's a lovely rabbit hole you made me jump down. ;-) The article mentions that to an engineer, π ≈ 3, which is a pretty good summary.

comment How does the Noah's Ark narrative relate to the Gilgamesh flood account?
Thank you for reference to the Wiseman hypothesis. I've read a variation of the theory, but did not know where the idea originated. Looks like a have some reading before me.

comment Did Jesus have the legal authority to cleanse the temple?
This is a fine question, in my opinion. It's certainly different from my question, which just assumed Jesus would not have human authority to drive off the money changers and sellers.

comment How should we understand the “Cleansing of the Temple”?
@GoneQuiet I've heard so many times that commerce at the Temple was corrupt that I assumed it was. But I'd like to have a source other then my Sunday School teachers (who are probably the best analogue in the Protestant tradition to midrash), but I haven't found any so far. I'll keep looking as I have time.

comment How should we understand the “Cleansing of the Temple”?
@GalacticCowboy: Right. I think both views would agree that Jesus was correcting injustice and disrupting commerce; those phrases could probably be swapped at will. (It's a hard question to ask neutrally and without bias. I tried not to use overly-loaded terms.)

I already gave you my +1, but I do appreciate the clarification.

I didn't at all initiate the conversation despite trying to think about how the Bible talks about peace this week.
