I'm a hybrid programmer / web designer / psychology researcher. I'm currently doing internet-based psychological interventions with a University of California health research lab, trying to help folks learn skills for creating positive emotions and coping with stress effectively.

I also help non-technologically-inclined researchers and administrators manage and collate large datasets. Munging unruly text files may not be glamorous, but you'd be surprised how often it's what gets the science done.

comment Why did Nazi soldiers do Hitler's bidding?
Also bear in mind that Hitler didn't invent racism or anti-semitism. There was a long history of suspicion and dehumanization against Jews (and other oppressed groups) that intermittently erupted into violence. The holocaust was certainly a new level of systematic brutality, but it didn't come out of nowhere.
