My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
To be updated for 2014 New Year...with particular attention to this being a summary and not a thesis (chopped it down 3/4 already).

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Developing plans and strategy for establishing a computer and video gaming museum. It's computers all the way up in my house(s)! I have a museum collection of vintage computers, video games, technology and other paraphernalia weaving all the ideas of the information age together. My main focus and goal is to run a social museum to share my philosophy of technology and to educate the public about the many issues we face around privacy, ownership, identity, control, politics, rights etc.

Other things keeping me busy are work, friends, family, Hare Krishna group, Theosophical Society group, Bikram Yoga. Every day is spoken for.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
or show commitment to the things I like doing. See above.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm quite quiet and reserved.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have a large collection of non fiction books. Despite this, I'm not a cover to cover book reader which is perhaps a discipline I did not develop growing up reading comics when I was a kid. On the balance, I do consume vast amounts of information online on a daily basis. This replaces conventional reading which possibly is not where I am at.

Movie-wise, well, let's just say I have grown up watching movies (and not reading books...), and have an extensive collection (a word you'll hear much with me) of VHS and DVD movies.

I am interested in the kind of person who is a movie aficionado, who can appreciate all kinds of movies despite genre. I like my hollywood movies as well as arthouse. I like martial arts (grew up on these), action, sci-fi, horror, drama, comedy, documentaries, etc. I think what makes a movie good is based on factors other than just what my taste in movie genres is.

I derive as much intellectual pleasure deconstructing B-movies, that most people find themselves above, as I might with movies people consider more intelligent.

The Matrix, Blade Runner, Logan's Run, Dune, Donnie Darko, Avalon, Heroes (yes it went downhill pretty quick), Buffy, Star Trek,Star Wars, Blakes 7, Neverwhere, Star Dust, Ender's Game, Labyrinth, Dark Crystal. I like old British TV comedy, but am also partial to the Flying High and Naked Guns humour, Mike Myers silliness etc.

Music. I like all types of music. Anything with a nice tune I can hum to. I'm not sure what my problem is, but I cannot hear words/lyrics in music. I think my introverted brain never learned to process external information that quickly.

Food. Vegetarian. If you do ask me why I'm vegetarian my response is "for all the reasons".
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Air, Food+water, Sleep, Shelter - you know, just the bear necessities : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ogQ0uge06o
Language (I'm thinking of listing a computer language as my first language on the census to please our future computer overlords),
Free Will (really, I have one at the Public Trust. It didn't cost me anything)

The six things I could do without :
my electric tin opener
a kick in the nuts
UPPERCASE letters
blue vein cheese
tax returns
an opposable thumb (I'd rather it just got along with the rest of my fingers)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Thinking. When I procrastinate, I spend a lot of time thinking about thinking about thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out. Then I go home. Then I turn into bed. Some people turn into werewolves. I turn into bed.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I might ponder how stupid people are that answer "well, that's private" to this question, yet are either oblivious to, or totally willing in, how much private information they freely give away online or electronically.

Other private/personal admissions:

I've never sworn. I'm sure I'll have a Flanders meltdown one day.

I eat bananas by removing them entirely from the skin first. Some people seem to think that is entirely improper. I like to remove the stringy bits and bit at the bottom.

I dry myself with a flannel first before a towel. In all my years of changing room showering I have never seen anyone else do the same, and again, people have thought me unique for doing so.

I'm pretty honest so you can ask me anything as I consider nothing sacred and private. Facebook, Google, the Gubberment, the law, etc have already fashioned the world we live in on this basis.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
while reading this you got this far without yawning more than thrice, did not need to take a toilet break, plug in the power supply to your laptop or think "TL;DR".

For me is a match based on compatibility of Personality type (I'm an INTP), Philosophy/values, Purpose, Physical and Place (I'm relocatable of course, but only if you are too).
PPPPP. Once you factor in my age, there's basically no one left in my own country so I'm looking to anywhere in the world for a potential partner.

If you consider yourself a giver, look for opportunities as something to give rather than take, believe a relationship is about giving and giving as opposed to what I consider a zero sum game of give and take, like to give it your all, I am keen to hear from you. The rarer profiles I have bookmarked list what they have to offer to a partner rather than want from a partner. When I read between the lines with profiles I try and establish how materialistic someone is, or how humble and selfless a person is.

You believing in God is a good start. I believe there is a God and that all else follows pretty much from this notion and that free will need not have its toes stepped on in the process, and that God is all loving and not the vengeful sorta fella. What complicates matters further on dating sites which are good at names and labels, is that simply listing Christianity or any other named religion means very little to me. I like the sign above the door to the Theosophical Society I go along to which says "there is no higher religion than truth". I do consider myself very spiritual, but find most profiles describing themselves as spiritual fits into that description on about.atheism.com.

A level of fitness in a partner is important to me as well. Brains without brawn would be limiting us so many different activities and adventures to share in. I miss the martial arts and would love to train with someone, teach or learn from someone if the opportunity arose. I haven't been as active as I should at presently it is just Bikram yoga, walking or the occasional 10K run around the block.

You are a more traditional valued person in the sense that you believe we are different and complementary rather than just equals.

You are politically aware as there is some pretty heavy stuff going on in the world.
