Boris' Home


Welcome to this particular chunk of hard drive, traveler. Take a break. Have a rest. Instead of just throwing links at you, I'd like to tell you something about myself. I'll throw the links as I go along, never fear.

My name is Boris Zbarsky. I'm just graduated from MIT with SB degrees in physics and math. This means I have taken classes. For a while I lived at Random Hall—a cozy dorm that serves as home to 93 quite offbeat students, as well as the bathroom server and the laundry server. Then I took a year off from school and somehow never returned to dorm life.

As I mentioned, I enjoy math and physics. These pretty weird interests, together with a desire to participate as a test subject in a sleep deprivation/eugenics experiment once led me to spend a summer at RSI. Or at least I thought that RSI involved sleep deprivation. Then I became an MIT student. Now I know better.

You wonder what I do with my free time? What is this free time whereof you speak? It's all taken up with projects! Well, I suppose I do have some every so often... I enjoy canoeing and kayaking, though opportunities to do that in Boston have been scarce so far. I like to rollerblade. I read books. I go swing dancing. I love to watch movies. And I enjoy spending time with my friends very much.

Any links that did not fit in in an semi-organized manner into the narrative above can be found on the page of various links. This way, it's not me throwing them at you—you're choosing to look at them yourself.

Send suggestions to, please.
