1: Bio:

Dear Lyn, one of the practices in computer science is how brief one can make a program that is useful and does what you want it to do.
The briefest language in COMPSCI is Lisp. I love Lisp and the beauty and shortness of the language. Your invitation to a short bio is like asking a Lisper to write a program that replicates itself. In LISP it is 96 words, in Fortran it is 12 pages. So I replicated AR in English, in this case the conceived lived died is required to initiate the program. Sorry it was not sarcasm merely CS humour from a man who spends many hours in front of much worse CS code.

Now the comment on Russia is interesting, but did he change any part of Russian history because he went there - I doubt it so it is redundant as far as I can see.
