I'm an EE and CS graduate who has been borrowing from the emerging field of systems biology for years. My favorite style of design is to build new things out of old parts by connecting them in unexpected ways. I am the inventor of Wiki, where I "misused" the web's forms capability to make a new kind of social experience.
