My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, my life over the last few years...

I started doing a Maths and Physics degree because it seemed like a thing that I would do based on my A-levels. Then two years in it did not seem like a thing I would do (Maths, a thing I'd always found pretty easy, got unbelievably hard at that point). So two years in I thought maybe a History and Politics degree would be the thing to do. So I did that (which turned out to be much easier).

After that, skiing seemed like a much better idea than joining the real world so I flew off to Canada for a year. It was a much better idea, except when I landed back in the UK it turned out that while I had my back turned someone had accidentally ruined the economy. So I ended up spending 18 months writing up reports on things that had been on the TV and radio. This was awful, but it did teach me to type really quickly, so I end up writing long messages.

Anyhow, I managed to finally bounce myself to another department, where I got to make some of my own decisions about what I spent my time doing. It was around then that I realised I could just tell the computer how to do all the most boring bits of my job and suddenly a love of computer programming was born. Two years later and now that's what I do for a living, at a tiny start up in trendy Brixton. We'll change the world someday, at the moment I'm mostly helping sainsbury's enforce the time limits in their car parks.

Also at some point in there I drove to Mongolia - this is the source of many good stories, with at least 1.5 near death experiences.

Also, I'm tall - which is...good?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I tell computers what to do for a living and am into it enough to be a bit disappointed that neither C# or Java was on the list of languages to speak.

Anyhow, I enjoy my job a pretty stupid amount.

Other than that I spend a fair bit of time playing bike polo, which is much like the horse version except on a bike with a lot more crashing and alcohol.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm pretty good at telling computers what they should be doing.

I'm better at riding bikes than people who aren't very good at riding bikes.

I've built a couple of bike wheels and they've not collapsed and killed me yet.

I quite like writing letters with a pen and paper, sadly my handwriting is only legible not beautiful.

A decent skier, once I get my legs back around day two.

Picking up a new skill quite quickly, getting ok at it but never spending the time to master it - I guess I just like the learning.

I can strum a guitar pretty adequately and occasionally sing along to it less adequately.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books.
I was pretty bummed when Iain Banks died this year. I end up re-reading Pratchett whenever I feel sad/lonely/bored/he's written something new. I like the odd bit of literary fiction if I'm in the mood, Margaret Atwood, Martin Amis, Geoff Dyer...
The last book I actually read...er.. that would be Android Development in Practice

Movies
Favourite of all time: Dazed and confused
Last at the Cinema: Gravity
Crappy Film I love for no reason I can rationally explain: League of extraordinary gentleman (really that film is terrible and yet I'll watch it whenever it is on).
Film that I enjoyed that seemed to be written with me in mind, particularly the bit where Joseph Gordon Levitt escapes from the police lockup by doing a bunch of unnecessary trials riding tricks: Premium Rush

Shows
I've been watching Sleepy Hollow, and I'm telling you, it's the new X-Files. I also watch an unreasonable amount of QI. Most of the slightly geeky, quality TV that everyone tends to like - Game of Thones, Doctor Who, Firefly. At some point I'll end up watching Breaking Bad I'm sure.

Music
I listen to a depressingly limited amount of music, mostly it ends up being a lot of Radiohead/Atoms for Peace (I'm pretty sure music peaks at the breakdown in Arpeggi/Weird Fishes (3.43 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEB-MCpcaH8) . I've also listened to a fair bit of Dawn of Midi recently (to fulfil my band you might not have heard of quota). When I'm trying to be a bit more diverse/seem more interesting I like a bit of Jazz (Coltrane, Miles Davis, Steve Bruback). Oh and I think this should have been a massive viral hit but wasn't. Stick with it (or skip to 2 minutes in...) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnOmrDzRrGQ&noredirect=1

Food
Food reached its apex with the advent of Pepperoni Pizza. I will eat pretty much anything that isn't Jelly or Jelly based.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I tend to think you can adapt to anything pretty quick, but six things I enjoy having at the moment

Bike(s)
Guitar
Kindle/just books
Computer
Radio
Pizza
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When was the last time English had divergent words for the same thing across different countries? Was the last one Mobile phone/Cell phone? Has the internet killed this?

What a good opening message looks like. Sorry if one of my attempts wasn't very good.

Also, compiler errors.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In a pub or travelling somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really don't like labels sticking out of clothing but I'm not sure why.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
It seems like a good idea.

Or maybe I messaged you and you're wondering if you should message back. You should, I'm, you know, ok.
