Tell us something about your name (first, middle, last, nick, handle, etc).

My name is Baldvin Einarsson and I'm originally from Iceland.

How did you get interested in: computers, databases, mysql? (pick one or all of the topics)

I've played around with computers from an early age. Database experience came with my PhD project where I handled data from the Marine Research Institute of Iceland. Queried a dataset of half a billion entries. I'm also setting up a (small) database of the state quarters etc. for my personal collection. I ultimately want to create a phone app for that purpose (as a learning experience). MySQL turned out to be very easy to install and use (and free!) and I've enjoyed using it.

Introduction

I'm and applied mathematician (PhD) and I recently moved to Boston for family reasons. I'm generally interested in programming and have considerable experience through my dissertation research.
