Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in Vermont, went to college upstate, spent a couple years
building killer robots, and now I'm shoveling code through the
tubes of the internet. I think that pretty much covers my life up
I do not take myself very seriously. Eventually I'd like to settle
down and have some nice, strong convictions about big issues... I
know I'll feel warm and fuzzy inside once I've figured out the
answers to all the important questions. But right now I'm confused
about most of them and am okay with that.
I enjoy being sarcastic, saying absurd things, and composing
convoluted analogies that muddle my point instead of clarifying it.
Usually people can tell when I'm being serious. Sometimes I cannot.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I make web applications for a luxury real-estate management
company. Oh yeah, it's as sexy as it sounds - please let me tell
you all the juicy details about our online system for processing
Outside the nine to five, I'm dice-chucking, whiskey-drinking,
trail-blazing, kettlebell-swinging, frisbee-slinging, pan-frying,
Also, working on a super cool website that will definitely
revolutionize the way the world critically examines and discuss
important issues and published works (no chance of failure fo
Also, I'm trying to read about/listen to 'important things' so I
feel like I'm making an effort to understand the world I live in
and such. So far I still feel naïve.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Armchair philosophizing.
- Board games
- Guessing the correct path at unmarked forks in the trail.
*UPDATE* I discovered my correct-path-choosing intuition is not so
great after I wandered into Harriman state park by myself with no
map and a dead cell phone. That adventure ended with me abandoning
the trail, getting rained on, sneaking through someone's backyard
in rural NJ, then trudging down an empty back road for six miles
before finally stumbling across a bar.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Is it okay to speculate in conversation about subjects that you
really have little knowledge on?
Is it important to declare the nature of your statements (ex: "I'm
no expert and this is just speculation, but..." ) or should this
just always be taken as a given unless someone explicitly cites the
source of their statement (ie, when someone says "There was a study
that was published by blah blah blah").
Is it more or less okay based on the subject matter? Ie. okay to
speculate about unimportant things like 'why do they release movies
on Christmas day?' but not okay for questions like 'should we raise
the minimum wage?'
