Paul D. Pruitt
Socrtwo is the nom de plume of Paul D. Pruitt. Unfortunately I have no common sense and have an enormous schizoid ego.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Biology from Swarthmore College and a Master's Degree (which I returned the diploma) in Biology from the University of Pennsylvania.
- My resume - I am now working at a Helpdesk for the National Institute of Standards (NIST).
- Plant Hormone Theory - I have 20 year obsession with developing a simple theory of plant hormones.
- Tutorials - I have developed several beginners to intermediate level computer tutorials on various subjects, viewable
- My General Website - it encompasses most of my ideas and has links to my portfolio of computer art, animation and PowerPoint stuff.
- Divine Selection - Evolution as seen through the eyes of Jesus and John the Baptist?
- Scipture Physics - Speculation on the structure of the Universe using scriptural ideas.
- Socrates' Political Cycles - a hopefully good summary of the cycle of politics that Socrates/Plato describes in the 8th, 9th and 10nth Books of the Republic. Christianity is seen as responsible for the rebirth of the cycle in Europe as the Roman culture died.
- Data Recovery Clearinghouse - I also spent a couple of years working on a failed Data Recovery company. The still useful result is a half finished data recovery clearinghouse with around 150 freeware data recovery links
- Silly Books- A recently developed hobby is publishing children's' and adult books via CafePress.
- alt.freeware Group Posts - recent activity.
- Should Exist - these are my dreamer invention ideas.
I created the first article on plant hormones which since then has been smartly split off into plant hormone theory I, plant hormone theory II, auxin, cytokinin, gibberellin, Ethylene (plant hormone), abscisic acid, Salicylic acid (plant hormone), brassinosteroid, and polyamines. Most or all of the "Location, Characteristics and Occasions for Synthesis Induction" and "Effects" was written by me (such sections are not there for polyamines).
I also wrote the first article on plant senescence.
I like Wikipedia and am open to suggestions for where I can contribute.--socrtwo 02:54, Mar 18, 2005 (UTC)
