Jason's first graphing calculator was a TI-83 Plus that he received as a Christmas present during his freshman year of high school. That summer, he learned assembly, aided by the fact that his local library actually had an old book on Z80 assembly. Since then, he has won a TI-89 and TI-84 Plus through various contests. Jason's hobbies include programming both calculators and computers, web development, and explaining to others the obvious need of having (and using) all three calculators. He is now going off to college to study computer science with a possible minor in mathematics.
