nĭtens (Lat. for sleek, shining, glittering) is the species taxon of a European ground beetle, Carabus nitens L..
nitens.org is the name of my virtual playground, hosting resources related to my work (research, editorial and teaching materials) as well as development projects I have been involved in. It is also home to a bunch of random things such as a photo portfolio, some geeky advocacy materials, pictures of Tersilla and tips on cooking North Sea crabs.

Some technicalities

nitens.org is invisibly run by Wikka, a GPL-licensed, standards-compliant and lightweight wiki engine written in PHP to whose development I contribute.
