He lectures about Java and object-oriented programming at Polytechnic University in Brooklyn. His Cafe con Leche Web site at http://metalab.unc.edu/xml/ has become one of the most popular independent XML sites on the Internet. Elliotte is originally from New Orleans where he returns periodically in search of a decent bowl of gumbo. However, he currently resides in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn with his wife Beth and cats Charm (named after the quark) and Marjorie (named after his mother-in-law). When not writing books, he enjoys working on genealogy, mathematics, and quantum mechanics.
