Jonathan Katz Joins ticalc.org
Posted by Michael on 27 March 2004, 00:07 GMT

It's been a long time since we announced that we were hiring, but the wait is finally over. We'd like to welcome Jonathan Katz to our staff. Jonathan will be editing and posting reviews, posting surveys, and otherwise generally assisting with the site.

We wish good luck to Jon, and remember to submit lots of high-quality, objective reviews for him to process!

Yes! Congratulations, Jonathan! I was also wondering what was going to happen with the hiring members thing.

Yes, I sent them an e-mail, but it seems that TICALC has found a person more qualified. Oh well. Congratulation.

Sure, but that didn't help me in my application. Yes, it is a classic Russian name. It has many connotations most of which refer to fairy tale character "Ivan the Dumb" or "Ivan the Silly", or the English equivalent "Simple Simon".

Now, I'm sorry to say, but I don't think I recognize the name. Does the new staff member have an account? Did he upload some programs? Maybe I downloaded them! :) Anyway, I was just curious.

His account number is in the 48 thousands. 48939, to be exact. :x

He's been around for awhile, but he just created his account.

That's what I figured. A lot of people seem to be around here for a while before they create their account.

Hehe, we pretty much made him sign up :-) But he never apposed it! I think he should have held out a little longer and gotten 49000 :-)

Well, how long would it take to get the 60 new users to get to the 48999? I think that might be another interesting statistics...number of people signed up for an account as a function of time. Would it be approximately exponential? That would make sense...or logistic....

I would guess logrithmic, since a certain percent of population will use calculators, and of them, a small percent will have accounts here, and the population growth is logrithmic... Unless TI goes out of bussiness...

I think ticalc.org's new members depend on TI. If they come out with a new calculator, people are most likely going to buy it (because it looks pretty). And then they'll, of course, want games for it, and so they'll come here. I also think around the beginning of each school year, there's a jump in the number of ticalc.org members because that's when most people buy their calculators-- right before school.

I meant logistic and not logarithmic...I always get those mixed up...logarithmic doesn't make sense at all, because it's negative at first...

wow...that was confusing...at first I thought I had said logarithmic, and that you had corrected me to logistic, so I went in to post, and was all mixed up, and now I realize that I actually was right at first...Anyways, to the ticalc staff: That would be interesting to see...is there any way to find out that information? If there is, I would love to see it or even get data and make the graph myself in excel or something...let me know if this is possible...

Actually, I think that honor belongs to Andy Selle. As I recall, they overhauled the news system many years ago, and they had to reassign the IDs.
