Impressions and Expressions of Ijon

For fun and profit, I read, study, teach ancient languages, and tame computers.

I'm a professional procrastinator. Really, I'm quite good at it!

Apparently, I am favored by Serendipity.

I founded and am general editor of Project Ben-Yehuda [Hebrew].

I contribute to the Hebrew Wikipedia, and am a board member of Wikimedia Israel.

I refuse to serve as an IDF reservist in the occupied territories, and have been imprisoned for it.
