I'm a biomedical and electrical engineer with interests in information theory, complexity, evolution, genetics, signal processing, IndieWeb, theoretical mathematics, and big history.

  1. Hi Chris. When I decided to leave a comment I couldn’t remember where I entered the plentitude of your productions. I think I found you through the Zettellkasten description in Wikipedia.

    After crawling around some of your creations and following many of the links you provide, I came to the conclusion that you seem a renaissance “man”/person (if you prefer) in what I consider the truest sense of the term. Even before reaching the conclusion, the question in my mind is/was “where and how does he find the time”? I thought that the name Chris Aldrich might be the pseudonym of a whole company of people that churned out the mass of information that you seem to publish.

    My hat is off to you.

    I have wondered a quite a few questions. I imagine the answers exist somewhere in breadth of information that you have posted. Other than where you find the time? I wondered if you started life in Britain? I don’t know, I just got a vibe. I wondered, what is your educational background? A classical education, I’m guessing. I just found that you represent people in the entertainment community. I’m guessing that you work for yourself?

    If you get a chance drop a line. And thanks for the inspiration.

  2. I’m reminded of hearing that the group that went by the pseudonym Nicolas Bourbaki all decided to give up and disband when they heard that Serge Lang was just one person.

    I too am just a single person, but certainly one could spread rumors to the contrary. The apparent image can be seen to be propped up when you realize I post and host everything on my own website (usually first) compared others who put their content online across several dozen social media services where it’s harder to aggregate, search, and reuse. Otherwise I spend a lot of my free time reading and taking notes instead of doomscrolling social media. I’m glad that there are a couple who find it interesting much less inspiring, so thanks for that.

    I started out in the rural South in the United States and there’s nothing British about me aside from my genetic roots which probably tend more to the Scots-Irish and Welsh. My background is primarily engineering and the sciences, but I’ve read fairly broadly within the humanities, and that may show through from time to time. You’ll find more at or by surfing around here…

    What about you Rick? Where are you from? What’s your background? Thanks again for stopping by.
