My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Computer science-er, prolific twitterer, science fiction lover, consumer of delicious music and books, pro-intersecionality and pro-feminism, barista wannabe, hopefully an enjoyable kinda weird!

I want to make the world a better and less judgemental place for _everybody_, but if I can do it without having to talk to or fight lots of people, that'd be nice :)

Not particularly looking for anything, but I dunno, cool people are cool.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Got burned out a bit by trying to balance leading a startup engineering team, trying to be a find my place as a socially conscious software developer in an industry that's kind of the face of exploitative capitalism in many ways, and coping with social anxiety.

Probably going to chill and work on fun and incredibly nerdy projects for the rest of the year; trying to write a game based on social anxiety and do some really boring (i.e super fun!) projects involving programming language compilers and whatnot. Figure if I can beat my imposter syndrome with some juicy fun projects, I'll feel more comfortable when I get back into the swing of things.

Other than I find myself practicing latté art, enjoying Guild Wars and anime with housemates, going to concerts for music that I love, going to meetups, and playing with my cats <3
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
being a repository of random trivia.
tweeting weird things (http://www.twitter.com/MentatMode)
being a resource of cool and uncool music (http://last.fm/user/gdcosta)
making espresso, roasting coffee beans pouring slightly misshapen latté art!)
mapping out a list of recommended coffee shops in Toronto
Not being perturbed/upset by anything unless there is a practical reason for being so.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hat, which doubles as my button-collection.
My questionably-fabulous colour coordination on outfits.
My usually-shaved head.
I tweet. A lot. I don't think it's all empty or shallow, and it feels more useful than blogging (and it's easier to find friends that way!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:
Science Fiction, Graphic Novels, Philosophy Books, Computer Science Textbooks, Film/Music criticism.

Moving Pictures:
I tend to like auteur movies, off-beat films, really good hard scifi, and movies that fail because they are just too fabulous. The right kind of documentary really interests me, but I've found I'm neither into political documentaries or nature documentaries.

Television:
Classic Science Fiction, Anime (ideally more socially driven slice-of-life stuff than action-packed stuff) and diverse character driven ensemble pieces like The Wire or Orange is the New Black.

Music:
Oh, I want to list pages ... it can range from pop to noise-metal to weird experimental things to classic rock ... I'm both very discerning but have a wide palate, especially if people have written good literary cricism about music. I tend to go no earlier than 60s Miles Davis, and I generally am not into things just for being upbeat.

Games:
I've been playing video games since the earliest days of the home computer, so I'll just say that I like anything with a good story and interesting mechanics. If I had to pick a modern genre, I suppose I'd say I tend to favour Role Playing Games.

There is an awesome community of independent artists in Toronto who use the medium of video games to explore issues of diversity, queerness, and all sorts of artistic expression! I love that people have taken games and turned it into an accessible way for people who otherwise wouldn't be into programming to get into programming as an art form!

I'm starting to get into board games, again I prefer interesting mechanics though I'll play anything with people I enjoy being around.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My laptop
Reading material
Colourful socks
Bracelets made for me by beloved friends
My TTC metropass
headphones for whatever music I'm feeling the need to listen to at the time!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what music best suits my current mood
programs I can write in my favourite programming languages, ones that feel like writing poetry and not just moving data around.
how to trick my cats into just that much more cuddling
how hostile the startup tech scene can be to non-bros, and how I can find a way to do what I love while truly making the world a better place!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In my house, reading and/or coding. There is almost always music. There are always cats.
- or -
Wandering around parts of the city that I've never explored or urban areas that I particularly enjoy.
- or -
Seeing a band because I like the music (or the venue!)
- or -
At a café with a book or laptop.
- or -
chilling with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have social anxiety and depression. It's usually inward though, I don't lash out unprovoked (and I try my best to warn people ahead of time.)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You find stuff interesting and thing I'd find it interesting too.

One of the ways you enjoy hanging out is by working on things (together or separately) as a way of hanging out.

You are okay being friends with someone who prefers being detached and finds it uncomfortable being openly emotional.

You are okay with people being socially conscious but not that great at activism or confrontation.

You aren't allergic to cats.
