Who galaxygoo
How Personally, I'm pretty good with Excel, Flash, JavaScript, and webMathematica.
Why

GalaxyGoo is an interdisciplinary, volunteer "think tank" dedicated to exploring expressions of science and math with online technologies, for public benefit. I develop interactive tools with Flash. These range from interactive animations and simulations to educational games and database programming.

I'm interested in learning about the concepts that today's students have trouble grasping, and what their teachers are currently doing to help them. I'm also interested in taking online applications to hand-held devices with students doing field studies.
