Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm laid back, but with a sharp sense of humor and a tendency
toward being a cynic. I've also got an always-on sense of
curiosity, and I try to contain it, but it's easy for me to just
blurt out something like 'I wonder if hermit crabs have gills?!'
apropos of nothing.
Good conversation is, over anything else, what I most enjoy.
Although a bad movie shared in good company can be a close
My interests are all over the place, so I'm comfortable with most
topics (aside from sports I guess), and I love to talk to anyone
who is passionate about a subject.
Being interesting, and being interested in things are my most
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just finished a doctorate in astrophysics, and now I've got a tech
job in the valley.
Other than that: I make things, I program computers. I try to stay
healthy. I lost a lot of weight a couple years ago so my life still
has a lot of residual focus there.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Programming computers that are older than me.
I'm also fairly funny under the right laboratory conditions.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told I have a nice voice and a satisfying laugh.
Aside from that someone usually mentions what I do, so they end up
noticing that I'm smart (or at least *do* something smart).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I like a lot of things that other people and critics like. That's
not interesting. Here's some more out of the way stuff:
Kim Stanley Robinson's Red/Green/Blue Mars books are for me what
Atlas Shrugged is for other (terrible) people. It made me 100% sure
that politically I'm what's called a "libertarian socialist." Look
it up. Noam Chomsky is one.
I like mundane sci-fi. Robot & Frank and Her were good
My favorite bad
movie is a TNT made-for-TV one called
Pirates of Silicon Valley about the early days of Steve Jobs and
Bill Gates. It is lovely.
Peep Show is probably my favorite episodic comedy ever.
A certifiably bad show that I like is Continuum on Syfy. It's a
Canadian show about a cop from the future. Yup.
Lately I really, really, really like this AMC show that no one's
watching called Halt & Catch Fire
Penguin Cafe Orchestra, The Wild Tchoupitoulas, Starcadian,
and this youtube guy's bizarro-world TV show themes (worth your
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
10 megabits per second or more
My puggle (she's a rescue, if that's a Thing you care about)
A challenging project
Learning new things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I walk around with my Early-90s-Eyes on a lot so I can go
"whoaaahh... the future!" It's very entertaining.
How to be my own boss and start my own company... then feeling
embarrassed about such Ayn Rand-ian flights of fancy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Staying in, reading, learning French, programming, playing some old
video game, watching star trek, or all of the above.
I do still Go Out With People, obviously, but this rarely happens
consistently on Fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm currently (since spring 2012) trying to watch ALL THE STAR
TREK. So far I've finished The Next Generation, DS9, Voyager (ugh),
the Original Series, Enterprise, and The Animated Series. I think I
have two TNG movies left to watch at the moment.
I must do it because it is there to do. It is my Everest.
