I am a Moderator Pro Tempore for this site. That means I do things like handling flags, approving/rejecting edits, and generally help the community in any way I can. I'm here to help! If you have a question, I try to stay in our chat room almost all the time, even if I'm not at my computer. To get my attention, just post a message in chat with @Josh in it, and I'll respond as soon as I can.

I can also be reached from my website or via email at cogsci -at- josh -dot- gitlin -dot- name. If you have an any issues please don't hesitate to contact me.

I am not actually a Cognitive Scientist. I am Chief Technology Officer and the senior software developer at Digital Fruition, LLC. I am an avid user of Stack Exchange sites and fascinated by the workings of the mysterious and complex computer we call the human mind.

I believe firmly in this community and try to do do everything I can to help it grow! I am frequently on Meta where we discuss issues about this site. I'm very approachable. If you have a question or an issue, find me in chat or @ me on one of my posts. While I may not be the most knowledgable user about Cognitive Sciences on our site, I know a lot about Stack Exchange!

comment Computational differences between spiking neural networks and previous ANNs
Generally at Stack Exchange this is heavily frowned upon; questions should exist on one site only. Amir, please make sure to keep both questions updated, and when you accept an answer on one site, be sure to answer the question yourself on the other site, and link the two together. And please avoid cross-posting in the future. Thank you!

comment Is StackExchange.com Addiction Dangerous?
@draks: There are users who have said they are "addicted" on all the Stack Exchange sites, so I removed the portion of your question specific to Math. I think it's borderline on-topic now... we'll see how the community receives it!
