A Brief Biography
Jason's interest in classical liberalism began with reading The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged in high school. He helped establish the humanities.philosophy.objectivism newsgroup on Usenet. While Ayn Rand has been very influential in shaping his worldview, he does not consider himself an Objectivist. Philosophical interests include the French and Scottish Enlightenments; among more recent thinkers, he enjoys the work of Daniel Dennett, Henry Veatch, Karl Popper, and Isaiah Berlin.
Jason runs a weblog called Positive Liberty. Some of his favorite pieces to date include"The Ten Thousand Impostors,""Cloning a Raspberry Bush," and"Not So Different." Frequent topics include the relations between church and state, gay and lesbian issues, academic life, and foreign policy. He has also taken an interest in the politics of his hometown, Glen Burnie, Maryland, where he lives with Scott Starin, his partner of six years. He is very much looking forward to posting at Liberty & Power.

Not to brag, but I was essentially responsible for creating HPO, back in the day. Through technical difficulties, I was unable to post to the group I'd created for several months thereafter.
Oh well... Ancient history at this point.

I add my hearty welcome also!

Jason! Welcome aboard.
I had no idea that you were to blame for the establishment of HPO. :)
Seriously, HPO does include some festive exchanges, but I think you'll find the exchanges here just as festive. It's great to have you!

Thanks to all of you, and I have to say I'm looking forward to the kind of dogfights that only libertarians can have.

Just seconding Arthur's welcome. Glad to have you aboard. It's been kinda fiesty here recently, including with one another, so pull up a chair and join the fray.
