I studied applied physics and computer science at college. I am passionate about developing and designing good quality software.

In my free time I do physics, read history, ride my bicycle, or harass my wife with my guitar and violin.

Here is my bookshelf.

comment How are words categorized into masculine, feminine and neutral
I am native speaker of Hindi that also assigns genders to nouns. I studied the language for 10 years but never came across any rules to help assign gender to nouns but I found that I rarely make a mistake. When non native speakers talk to me I hear a lot of mistakes. But here is the funny part, if I invent a noun and define it, most native speakers will assign it the same gender. I think this phenomenon is worth researching.
