I'm a composer, performing musician, and programmer; currently I'm a graduate student at New England Conservatory. I mostly develop Web applications (these days primarily with Rails, though that wasn't always the case), and I write algorithmic music software as well.

Note: If you're downvoting something I wrote, please have the courtesy to explain why.

comment What do you call the child who doesn’t resemble his / her parents in English?
"Atavism" is the state of being atavistic. Someone who is atavistic is an atavist, AFAIK.

"Cuckoo child" doesn't exist in English, and wouldn't be understood. The slang meaning of "cuckoo" in English is "crazy", not "interloper".
