Ayman Fadel founded this blog sometime before 2006 on a non-Blogger platform, and in 2006 he moved it to Blogger. His first blog entry describes the goals of the blog.
If you want to learn more about Ayman, simply look at the materials in the sidebar. If at some point there is demand for a bio, in sha Allah I'll put one together.
