First, an introduction: I'm Evan Nitkin, colloquially referred to as "Ben's brother." My favorite animal is the leatherback turtle and my favorite food is the orange. I enjoy semicolons; they're one of the easiest-to-use (and most underutilized) punctuation marks.
One of my favorite hobbies is over-committing: a sampling of my extra-curriculars over the last year include having been the LigerBots's CFO, captain of an MIT Blue Lobster Bowl team and an MIT Trivia team, in addition to ad manager on the Newtonite (the school's student published newspaper). I participated in the Massacusetts State Science Olympiad, the Massachusetts Regional Science Bowl, and the local West Suburban Science League competitions. I tried to be more active with the environmental club and Greengineers, but - alas - there are only 24 hours in a day. Doing things is fun.
Naturally, if a website called nitkin.net were to come into existence, I'd have to have my share. So I guess that's what I'm doing here. Expect posts about cool things I do.
One of my great pleasures in life is visual design. I like photoshopping stuff into pictures, photoshopping stuff out of pictures, and generally leaving things prettier than I found them.
