My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
An introvert who loves to be social, a liberal arts student that went into science, and an urbanite that thinks wistfully of the forest. (...All walk into a bar...)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as a bioinformatics engineer, writing software that will help cope with the huge piles of biological data that scientists are producing in search of things like cancer cures or ecological insight. I focused on AI in my computer science degree, but after graduating I realized that all the funding for AI research is to make army deathbots even smarter- which would not be the best motivator, in my mind.

I share a nice little apartment with several close friends in west Cambridge. Despite an annoying commute and preposterous price-per-square-foot rents, I'll likely be a loyal Cantabrigian as long as I'm living in the Boston area.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Programming, and other kinds of hacking in the constructive sense. Technology in general.

Used to think I'd work as a writer, since everyone tells me my fiction writing is good. Then I got to college and found I had no interest whatsoever in English classes, and wound up going down altogether different paths. I still have a novel or two living in my head that I may try to get out eventually, but, who doesn't?

I play classical/celtic guitar. Its almost to the point where I could play in public without feeling like a nuisance.

I'm told I'm a good dancer, but I'm not sure I believe this.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height. Or that I'm smirking for no discernible reason.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't believe in giant, exhaustive lists of media preferences.

I like many of the words published by Neil Gaiman, William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, Terry Pratchett, Larry Niven, China Mieville, Charles Stross, and Jorge Luis Borges.

Whatever Faun, Psilodump, Kaminanda, Mother Mother, C418, Savant, and Beats Antique are, I like those genres of music.

Don't really do TV. I'm probably the only geek on this hemisphere that hasn't seen all of Doctor Who.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This is a fairly materialist question, isn't it? Unless one goes the "friends, family, and etc" route, its implying that some set of physical goods is a requisite for life, or a paramount moral necessity. I reject this premise!

That being said, you'll be pretty likely to find a computer, a pair of glasses, some paper, a phone, and a nice pen in my general vicinity.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
New scientific discoveries (I read science news semi-obsessively); how to get some programming/technical project to work; what to do the coming evening; what to write or draw; what to have for lunch; what to wear; how blue the sky is; how blue the sky isn't; the practicalities of space travel; the incalculable nature of cats; whether I've reached my daily caffeine limit; why I'm propositioned by bisexual guys so often; what book to read next...

(...INHALE...)

...what game to play next; how much another cup of coffee would throw my biorhythms; what it would mean if P = NP; where all the time/cookies/people went; what's going to happen next in Homestuck; what the next blockbuster cellphone app will be; why we can't all just get along already; where my towel is; how to stop global warming; brains; etc.

I have a smidgen of ADD.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Roll 1d8:

On a 1,2 or 3: Staying in, chatting with roommates, getting work done.
On a 4, 5 or 6: Dressed up and dancing in a room of flashing lights, loud music and weird people.
On a 7: At a bar, movie, or other typical amusement.
On an 8: Roll again twice.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The state of my bedroom tracks with my state of mind. Right now it's a huge mess.

You should! Defying outdated traditional gender roles by proactively initiating potentially-romantic contact is sexy.
