I'm a Community Manager for Stack Exchange. I've been known to respond to jericson@stackexchange.com.

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 Why don't Spanish words start with “sp”?
@Peter: I'm curious about that too. But I didn't even know that there were linguistic rules that explained the issue. Maybe that would make a good separate question?

comment How outdated is the Spanish of the Reina-Valera Bible?
The comparison is very helpful. Maybe because I don't ever open them side-by-side I've never felt like one version reads better than the others. Mal really doesn't fit with the way I think of this passage. Problemas does. Thank you.

comment Can I learn to roll my R's?
Learn to pronounce 'r' Japanese in order to pronounce it in Spanish seems a long way to go. Do you happen to have a source for that?

+1 for "rotacismo". I'll have to look at the exercises.

comment Can I learn to roll my R's?
I've been singing Spanish-language songs just about every week for years (in a Spanish-language church service). But I haven't focused on pronunciation during those times and not on the R in particular. Practice at home in song seems like a good idea, however. +1
