Whit Nelson is a man who fixes things which are broken, and breaks things which work just fine. Someday he may see the futility in that, but not today. Careening head-first down the waterslide of life, he writes and acts, he programs computers to do things they would rather not, and is a kung-fu grandmaster of hyperbole. A scientist and a skeptic, he drew a great deal from his proud hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Recently he opened a homebrew supply store with his partner Jared, and teaches brewing classes weekly. He thinks that the most destructive force in human history is certainty.
