Dean Moore writings

General portfolio is here.

Yes, I can write and have solid English. A few samples:

  • My doctoral thesis in mathematics Kirillov Theory for C*(G, Ω).

  • At least most the stuff I wrote for Wikipedia lives here.

  • I spent near three years studying Russian in college, and three weeks in Russia July 2009. Before going there and while there I read Maxim Gorki’s Twenty-six Men and a Girl, and translated the story after returning, at this link. Something of an exercise in two languages.

  • Something I wrote appeared as an editorial in Boulder, Colorado’s Sunday Daily Camera; see the link, here. Hand-transcribed this from the original, which I still have.

  • Another short story I translated from Russian, Mikhail Zoshchenko’s ultra-short story Nervous People, at this link.

  • A lab report I once did in a CU chemistry class, as a Word document , and in htmlSome of the formatting came out strange when I converted this to HTML; the original Word document is best.

  • What Oregon is really like. A satirical article, I wrote it when in CU’s mathematics department (hence the e-mail on the article, no longer valid), and used to read an Internet newsgroup titled alt.culture.oregon. I wrote it in response to questions out-of-staters would post, "What is Oregon like?" It was later re-printed in an underground Portland "zine" named Cheese. I still have a copy stashed. Since web links for last have a habit of vanishing, I copied and posted the entirety here.
