Ben Kahn: The Person

Ben Kahn -- looking sickly Just who is this Ben Kahn person anyway? Well, that's an easy question to answer. I'm good at tricks, and am very cute. I can dig great holes in the yard, and I chase... no. Wait! that's my dog, Sam. I'm a person, and I don't chase cars. I do dig the occasional hole in the yard, and I know a trick or two, but I don't bark. (often)


I guess the best place to start is with a (slightly re-touched) photo of myself and you'll get the idea. On the left, or above, depending on your WWW browser, you can see me after a few too many hours in front of the computer. If I remember correctly, this photo was taken at 5 in the morning. I have more photos, but you'll not get to see those. They just aren't very flattering.
I am currently enrolled in my second semeseter of my junior year at Columbia University. I'm studying Computer Engineering at the School of Engineering. You can see some of my work below, if you'd like. But, without any more rambling, here's my World Wide Web page!


Personal information

I have a confession to make. No, no one is dead because of me, don't worry. But, I couldn't figure out what you, most probably a perfect stranger, would want to know about me. I thought long and hard about this problem. (I'm not that interesting, which made the whole thing more difficult.) Never one to give up however, I found a psychology quiz which I thought might help me out. I had a great time, and came up with a horoscope-like analysis of me.

I thought about including a few stats about me... But it looked too much like a personal ad on the Web, so I decided against it. But, here's some good music...

Check out my archive of humor!

And take a look at my unix software which is available for everyone!

Like the counter at the bottom of this screen? You can use it too! I run a counter server

I've done a lot of work on the World Wide Web. Most of my employers want a home page, and so I've got quite a collection of my work. Classes I'm taking currently and any web information on them. I manage to keep myself fairly busy work wise, but if you're interested in hiring me, or are just really nosy into my life, you can take a peek at my resume.

Looking for files?

Cool wastes of time.

Some music that I like.

Some good companies on the Web.
