Hi there! I've been a Philomath resident since 2002, although I've lived in Oregon since 1995 (first in Newport and then in Corvallis). I moved to Oregon from Santa Barbara, CA where I was a doctoral student at UCSB. I came here to work as a professor at Oregon State University and I've really enjoyed it. More information is on my OSU web site at http://dusk.geo.orst.edu.
You might also enjoy this short entry that I wrote about Philomath in Citizendium, which is a new kind of Wikipedia, more expert-based. You can find the page at http://en.citizendium.org/wiki/Philomath%2C_Oregon
