My self-summary
OKC's algorithms managed to capture at least one important element of my personality- More Geeky. "Geek" I consider to signify that I spend a great deal of my time in the pursuit of idiosyncratic and/or esoteric interests, and I am quite proud to be one.

...Except that more recently my highest-ranked attribute is "More Dominant." ...Uh, sure? I'm such a dom, hear me roar! Raaaaaar!
What I’m doing with my life
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 work is in making army deathbots even smarter- which would not be the best motivator, in my mind.

Eventually I'll go back for a PhD and move on to hopefully even larger things, but for now I'm happy with nonacademia. In the meantime I sate my brainhunger by watching Coursera lectures and reading pop-science books.

I also often spend Saturday nights shining spotlights on people as they faithfully reenact a 70s cult movie.
I’m really good at
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. It turns out that talent does not equal destiny. But I still should be writing more than I do.

I can play classical guitar. Its almost to the point where I could play in public without feeling like a nuisance.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height. Or that I'm smirking for no discernible reason.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't believe in giant, exhaustive lists of media preferences. If I did my book paragraph would contain plenty of Neil Gaiman, William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, Terry Pratchett, Larry Niven, China Mieville, and a perhaps even a bit of "real literature"- Borges is pretty cool, for instance.

I tend to listen to electronic music; industrial, EDM, psybient, chiptune, etc etc etc. I have a tendency to listen to videogame soundtracks that I cannot explain nor justify.

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
Carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, trace elements and energy.

...What? Okay, fine:

A heartbeat, neural activity, body temp of approximately 98 F, respira-

...WHAT? Alright! Fine! I'll play by your silly rules:

Love, sunshine, art, fresh air, long walks on the beach and FLUFFY BUNNIES, okay!?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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...


...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
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 habitually wear mismatched socks. For awhile I had a thing of wearing one white sock and one black sock in otherwise unobtrusive outfits, but I no longer keep white socks around.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–29
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You should! Defying outdated traditional gender roles by proactively initiating potentially-romantic contact is sexy.
