putting the "antic" in "pedantic"


Hello. My name is Tim. I am a patent attorney in Portland.

I used to teach undergrads how to synthesize barbiturates, until I went to law school at UCLA. Then I moved to Oregon.

about the blog

This is my personal journal. Most entries are public; some aren't.

I talk about the usual stuff, post some pics and things I think are funny, yadda yadda. Sometimes I talk about legal issues and developments.
