Beauty
What I’m doing with my life
Updating my priors. "Seeking the truth", as they say. Trying to sate my curiosity.

Dancing. Coding. Capturing moments. Savoring those fleeting instants of sublime.

Figuring out relationships. As it stands, I find myself quite comfortable identifying as a relationship anarchist.

Someone I know once characterized herself as a "sensation junkie". I'd like to borrow that phrase.

I delight in finding beauty in small mundane things, in details too often overlooked.

I'm privileged to be employed at a company that pays me for developing an open source software product, a product that's well-liked among its target audience.

I like to think of myself as a maker - a creator of things - in spite of the nature of the things I - we - create being considerably more abstract than that of, say, a carpenter's artifacts.

Trying to gather motivation for finishing my M.Sc. in Computer Science someday.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Programming. Relationships and relationship anarchy.
Gender issues. Cognitive biases. Rationality and Bayesian rationalism. Communication. Sexuality and kinks. Beauty and aesthetics. The human condition, now and in the future.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to give foot massages.

One of the most awesome things that's happened to me was getting a spontaneous private tour of the Tuorla Observatory by Esko Valtaoja himself. Ok, perhaps not very private, but I like to brag about it. It was awesome.

You should message me if
you sometimes feel like an outsider in this world of ours.
If you, as well, feel it strangely appropriate to describe yourself in terms of opposites.
If you'd run into a drenching downpour to experience the full power of a thunderstorm.
If you have sometimes stared, awestruck, at the night sky.
If you enjoy the beauty of things beyond the superficial level.
