My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like my labels like I like my capitalism: smashed and irrelevant.

Message me if you're against Chill.

Hi, my name is Sahar. It means "new moon" in Hebrew and "daybreak/dawn" in Farsi. Yes, I share a name with not one, but two of the Twilight books.

I think about things a lot. I tend to talk about about big ideas, like:
+ Adventure Time and how it's actually about the experience of growing up
+ What exactly is "Modernism?"
+ The 2015 Greek elections and KKE vs Syriza vs Antarsya
+ Andrew Cuomo and how to defeat his plans
+ Perhaps Free Software is anachronistic -- maybe we should promote Free Networks instead
+ Monetary theory and if it's real
+ Pride and Prejudice and other good books
+ How can we best spend our lives

My favorite philosophers are Simone Weil, Socrates, and Diogenes, because they focused on "how to live" rather than "how to structure how other people live"

If that speaks to you, we will probably get along.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After graduating with my Master's degree in Computer Science, I founded a startup in New Haven. The basic concept was "a mashup of a business card, map, and push notifications".

After leaving, I spent about a year and a half with the Wikimedia Foundation. Those banners you see on Wikipedia, asking for money -- we did that. I ran the stats (and all the coding around the stats) for that fundraiser.

Realizing that I kept doing things that on-paper were fun, but in-person made me unhappy, I spent 8 months traveling the country, trying on lives like different hats. Founded a small startup, helped run Zephyr Teachout's digital campaign, found corporate power with an international NGO, hung out with hackers and anarchists -- you know, the typical stuff you do when you're trying to find yourself.

Lastly, I spent 8 months as a data scientist for a hot tech startup in NYC. We just parted ways, and I'm now figuring out what sort of thing I'd like to do next. Maybe data for a dating site? Or programming for a civic tech initiative? We'll see.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Kissing. Talking about whatever. Giving you my undivided attention.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My "dressed like I just don't care" is your "Hey, did you just come from a wedding? You look so fly."

One exception -- Harry Potter t-shirts are my crack.
And by crack I mean facebook. And by facebook I mean that I keep wearing them without even remembering typing anything in the URL bar.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
MUSIC: I listen to hipster music circa 2010. AKA indie music, soul train, and radical folk songs. I have cried at a Sufjan concert and I'm not afraid to admit it.

If you love Tamora Pierce or Terry Pratchett hit me up right now.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Rooftop everything.
The barter system.
Meaningful relationships with the people around me.
Books and the time to read them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sample of 4 consecutive Fridays:

Friday 1. Using my skills to help Wikipedia get donations.
Friday 2. After a board meeting in NYC, swagging up a socialist magazine launch party.
Friday 3. Dance. Machine. (Conference in DC)
Friday 4. Move to Oakland. Take care of my friends' geckoes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I ran away from school once.

Forgive me! I was young, and reckless.

Here's the story

It was 2nd grade. I won a meaningless competition; won the right to lead the milk line into the cafeteria. Little did I suspect that line of children would become a line of betrayal.

Noon. We form up. I move to the front. Teacher ushers me aside. Lisa will head the line today.



Anger. I storm out of the room, and out of the building. It took a couple of hours for the police to find me.

Don't worry, I had the last laugh. My parents were furious that it took so long to realize I had left. They transfered the whole family out of the school.
