Actually, you're more than welcome to read just about everything about me at http://gnosis.cx/ (browse from there); albeit with an extra boring layer on it. I did write (but stopped) some more accessible, and quirky, stuff at http://la.metblogs.com/author/lotle/.
There's a nice saying about the cardinal virtues of programming being laziness, impatience, and hubris. Hey, I got them in spades.
I am intellectual, observant, and accepting
I thought my "normal life" in sleepy New England was to be a fairly successful freelance writer; then it turned out that my life from Oct 2006 was to work way too hard writing computer programs for obscenely much money in Beverly Hills, and occasionally getting whisked away on a private jet. Now normal is back to the freelance thing, but in the bustle of Los Angeles, with trips to NYC, working with people who are building the world's fastest supercomputer for computational biochemistry.
FWIW, none of this ever had anything to do with movies, despite what the locale might insinuate.

As good here as anywhere, a word on American politics: Many of my friends are "disappointed" with Obama. I am not; he campaigned as a pro-war centrist Democrat, and has governed so far exactly as promised. Of course I am disgusted that that is the best we can elect in the USA, but not in the slightest surprised that this one is exactly as advertised.
Oh, and everything I know about sex I learned from Engels' The Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State. Maybe that's not actually private, but just sayin'.
Also, from a long way off I look like a fly (que de lejos parecen moscas).
I am often involved in several non-exclusive and ongoing relationships, what the young folks call polyamory. If your interest is (partially) of the romance/sex variety, I think that is great, and welcome the contact; I just want to let you know the context. Of course, if you might want to do something purely as friends/activity partners, that could be groovy as well.
What I would ideally like to find is pretty specific, although feels elusive. I would like a meaningful, caring, ongoing, and non-exclusive relationship with a woman who:
* is brilliant and intellectually engaged in some area(s) of thought;
* is beautiful and sexy;
* has graduate education, preferably a doctorate or other terminal degree;
* is politically and socially knowledgeable, and therefore leftist;
* has a very high sex drive (being a size queen also wouldn't hurt our compatibility);
* lives close enough to me frequently to spend time together.
This isn't to say, certainly, that folks not quite matching all the criteria shouldn't contact me. But I can still have a goal, no?
