I'm luke brandt, a student in the UK. While studying physics and maths, I also like sports (specially football), politics (particularly left-wing politics), information technology and computers, anime, biology etc. We have a copy of Encyclopaedia Britannica, and I had access to the online version once, but in my view the concept of the user-contributed wiki resource (as suggested by Ben Kovitz to Larry Sanger) will supersede a paper-based encyclopedia. I also edit Wikipedia and hang around on IRC when I should be asleep ;) Brahms is my favourite classical composer.
I'm happy to try and help anyone new here if I'm online ... leave a message on my talk page or skype me on luke.brandt
