I am, at heart, a learner. Can't stop, won't stop, no matter how ridiculous that pursuit of knowledge is. I crave new information and new experiences. I have broad interests, but seek depth in those interests as well, so that there are many topics that I've studied for years: Japanese culture and history, feminism and Judaism, Victorian literature, early 20th century design, and sociolinguistics and discourse. I also have a deep appreciation for smarm and cheese: hair metal bands, Europop videos, late-night telephone "dating" commercials (I actually don't watch tv anymore - do they still have these commercials? I loved them so much), and movies featuring car chases, rubber monsters, buckets of obviously fake gore, and/or Debbie (a.k.a. Deborah) Gibson.
One area I'm active in is free culture and open/public access to information. I'm trained as a librarian and archivist, and I'm an inveterate researcher, so I suppose it only makes sense that I'd care about access to information. More specifically, I'm interested in copyright issues, authors' rights, and digital repositories and publication.
My Myers-Briggs type is ISTJ. I generally feel that this type suits me well. My S score is close to an N - I'm not intuitive at all, but I am interested in big ideas as well as in details. I tend to fall pretty solidly into the I (needing time alone, preferring to hang with small groups of friends), T (rationality rather than emotions), and J (make a decision and act on it) categories.
