I'm also a technologist, which means I care about a lot of things most people find rather boring. But I cling on to the view that technology will impact humanity far more than any of us can anticipate.
I like sex positive people who don't think porn is ruinous or that children need to be 'protected' from everything.
I enjoy talking about politics, sex and religion at the dinner table.
I only look at the Herald Sun if I want to laugh. Sometimes it makes me cry though.
In social settings, religious people and I generally don't get along very well.
Some women have called me a feminist; others have stopped at pro-feminist. Yet others think that I am an insensitive capitalist Fascist who is part of "The System/Patriarchy". Personally, I think they are all at least partly right!
I'm in a non-exclusive relationship with two fabulous partners, so if that bothers you, you might want to move on.
- Driving in neutral in city traffic

Also love British classics like Yes Minister, Monty Python and Black Adder.
Books: I try and read widely, from philosophy to classics to science fiction to comics, and sometimes even biographies.
Generally like the works of Cohen Brothers, Guillermo Del Toro and Pedro Almodovar. All time favourite directors also include Stanley Kubrick and Krzysztof Kieślowski.
As for actors/actresses, I think Ingrid Bergman is the most beautiful woman who has ever lived on this planet, so I've seen everything she's played in!
I Love cheese!
And wine...and coffee... and everything really!
- Good coffee (lucky I live in Melbourne)
- Engaging, intellectually stimulating conversations
- The Economist
- A nice long shower every day. Yes I waste a lot of water, I'm conscious of it, and I'm not willing to change!
What driverless cars would mean for the vast areas of surface parking lots in metropolitan suburbs.
How much more efficient and cheap and profitable aviation would be if every country adopted open sky policies.
You get the idea.
