Stack Exchange employs me as a Community Manager. I've been known to respond to jericson@stackexchange.com. Alternatively, I maintain an office on chat. (Please ignore the meta cruft.)

I write about my experience as a community manager at jericson.github.io. You can read about what I've done over the years in my curriculum vitae.

On a personal note, I'm married and have three children. Our oldest son loves school, friends, games, and reading. (He can't wait to get on our LEGO® Answers site, but he's not quite old enough. My posts there are usually at his request.) Two of my children happen to have been born on the same day. I sometimes write about that experience.

Don't have time for a full review of something? Why not try my 5-second reviews?

Occasionally, I write a post for Eschewmenical.

comment Perl Programming in the Torah
@MonicaCellio: Next year, if someone asks about Lisp, I'm pretty sure I can prove beyond a doubt this it is the true language behind all creation. At the very least, can we agree that the Adversary is a little schemer?

comment Can a teen threaten or attack one parent, who is beating or is about to beat the other?
In situations like this, it certainly would be best as a general policy to contact a trusted adult and/or law enforcement. It's hard to fault a child caught in this situation for however they choose to cope in such a household. :-(

comment What does the Bible say about a father walking his daughter down the aisle at her wedding?
Off the top of my head, I can't think of any particular story or mention of walking the bride down the aisle. Come to think of it, the only part of a wedding I can recall in the Hebrew Scriptures is the multi-day party. (Jacob's two marriages and Sampson's come to mind.)

Rephrase slightly to focus on the possible Jewish origin of the tradition.

comment How were girls educated during the Talmudic era?
That certainly makes logical sense. Do you happen to have any sources that show how far back this ruling goes? Further, which portions of the law would they have been taught? Would they have been exposed to the Writings of the Tanakh, which might be useful in ways not strictly tied to fulfilling the mitzvot?

comment How were girls educated during the Talmudic era?
Thanks for the answer. I needed to look some things up, such as Sotah and I see there's a Hebrew/English parallel of the Torah text (Deuteronomy 31. I gather that daughters were taught the law, but only the Peshat meaning so that they would be able to practice it. Is that correct?

@Seth J: Oh. My primary interest is in the historical angle by all means. I'll take any old sources that apply. ;-)

@Double AA: You know better than I. However, I would like to read the "Talmudic sources" the article mentions, if possible. (I'm not at all sure which tag might apply.)
