My undergraduate degree was in Mathematics (University of Dallas, 1971). My core interest is General Systems Theory. My career was mostly in computer programming, however, I also taught English, and high-school mathematics, in China for 9 years. I am currently semi-retired, drawing social security, and working on my various websites. As far as I am concerned, anything I do here is in the Public Domain.

I got taken to task by Zev Chonoles for making similar speculation about the value of e, here: math.stackexchange.com/questions/26037/…
