Bio: 
Joe Corneli had a <a href="http://planetx.cc.vt.edu/AsteroidMeta/one_week_in_october">one week</a> reign as top user on PlanetMath in October of 2003 under the handle <a href="http://planetmath.org/?op=getuser&id=3284">apmxi</a>. This was a first-rate disaster. Since then he has helped produce the PlanetMath print compilation "<a href="http://aux.planetmath.org/book">The Free Encyclopedia of Mathematics</a>" (currently stalled, though we did manage to produce <a href="http://metameso.org/~joe/docs/book.pdf">a big book</a>) as well as the first wiki used by PlanetMath, "<a href="http://wiki.planetmath.org">AsteroidMeta</a>" (now rather abandoned it seems). These not-unambiguously-successful ventures are nevertheless great examples of learning from experience! Starting in Summer of 2010, Joe has been contributing to the <a href="http://trac.mathweb.org/planetary">Planetary project</a>, a new effort of the KWARC research group at Jacobs University, Bremen, DE, to create a new software backend suitable for hosting PlanetMath. He has enjoyed a stint as "the new <a href="http://planetmath.org/?op=getuser&id=1">unlord</a>" as he mucks about in Drupal. Joe's current academic "home" is the Knowledge Media Institute at The Open University, UK, where he is working on <a href="http://metameso.org/~joe/docs/thesis-outline.html">a Ph. D. project</a> that is closely related to PlanetMath.
