Hi

As per the "welcome to Geekzone" email, a post to introduce myself.

I'm Anthony Robins.  I'm a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Otago, which means that I know a bit about some esoteric topics, but in terms of practical working knowledge (networking, hardware etc) I'm no more skilled than the average user.  I'm particularly interested in CS education in schools, and have done a bit developing resources to support teachers with the new Digital Technology (programming) curriculum.

I have often found useful information here on Geekzone - thanks all for the great resource.

Cheers
Anthony

People around here can be funny. When reading a comment don't take it personally as everyone here knows we should always attack arguments not the people behind them.

Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.
