Welcome to the Republic of Yucca, the domain and range of Ken Williams, President for Life. As the Republic grows, so may the fortune of the President for Life.

These are a couple of things I do:

- The Math Forum

I graduated from Swarthmore College in 1996, and then worked full-time at the Math Forum. Now I'm in a different part of the country, but I still do some contract-based work for them. I'm a programmer and administrator for Dr. Math, which is just one of the great things the Forum does. Plus, working for something called "The Forum" makes me feel a little bit like Batman.

- Dr. Math

It's a neat little service at the Math Forum. Students from around the world can write in with math questions, and if they're lucky our team of experts (mathematicians, math college students, math teachers) will write them back with help. I and a couple of friends started the service in November 1994, and now it's pretty huge. The private backside of the operation is the Triage Area, which you'd need a password to access.

- Lazy Pilgrims Rock Band
We formed when I was a junior in high school, and we're still pretty excited about playing music together. Andy, Jesse and I have pursued music in quite different ways and that makes playing together pretty neat.

- Perl Programming
I got involved with Perl a while back. Here's a tutorial on creating Perl modules.

- Pictures
- Here's my page of people with their mouths open.
- Wanna see me with a kid?

- Math
- D. Joyce's Math History Page is a nice resource.
- Another math history page is the MacTutor History of Mathematics archive.
- Try the WWW Virtual Library of Mathematics.
- Use the FAQ Searcher at kuleuven.ac.be to find out some stuff.
- You can knit yourself a Klein Bottle hat (picture here) or Moebius Strip scarf if you visit Spamily's Knitting Page.

- Composers Timelines
Make sure you check out my lurky-nurky Composers Timeline.
