Merge keep.

I work at the University of New South Wales, where I use Ruby to analyze biological data.

In part of my spare time, I work on fun programming projects. One was trying to analyze what underlies Wikipedia's Get to Philosophy game. I also worked on one called the "Small Eigen Collider".

I'm currently learning Japanese, and I'm an active participant in lang-8.com, a website where you write journal entries in a language you're learning, and get corrected by native speakers of that language. In return, you correct people writing entries in your native language. Recently, I've been asking a few questions prompted by slightly incorrect English I've encountered on lang-8.

comment What should end-users do about Heartbleed?
I was meaning to ask about users of a website in my question. "Their sysadmin", plus "Help senior management evaluate ..." sounds like you're talking about users of a large corporate network. What kind of scenario were you talking about?

comment How can get email about latest vulnerabilities
+1 for using email to find out about security issues, rather than finding out via twitter. :( Or I would, if I was registered.
