conference bio

Reginald “Raganwald” Braithwaite is proof that somewhere, a village is missing its idiot. Either that, or a combinatory forest is missing its Idiot Bird, nobody is really sure. His interests include constructing surreal numbers, deconstructing hopelessly egocentric nulls, and celebrating the joy of programming.
