Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Inexperienced but open minded.
Shy and quiet but not without opinions.
Scientifically minded but artistically inclined.
But mostly I think there's more to me than can easily be summed up
in a little box on a web page.
I am tall, dark, and strange
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, like most people I spend about two thirds of it either
working or sleeping. But that's not a very interesting
One big aspect of my life is VJing - projecting video art onto
walls and screens, at clubs and parties. I've been writing software
for years - I do it for a living - and I've developed my own
programs for video creation and performance. Then at the weekends I
take them to venues and use them to create all kinds of odd
abstract psychedelic artwork. Left brain / right brain? Feh.
I also like finding out about new stuff. Any old random stuff - it
doesn't matter a bit. Not long ago I spent about a week of evenings
reading about beekeeping. It might be an interesting hobby to take
up when I get a bit older.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making machines do things.
Having opinions that most people don't share.
Moaning about all the idiots in the world, and the problems they
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People say I'm attractive. Before they've got to know me. I'm not
quite sure how they come to that conclusion so quickly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I'm a fan of "hard" science fiction. My all-time favourite
sci-fi books are "The Mote in God's Eye" by Niven and Pournelle,
and "Vacuum Diagrams" by Stephen Baxter. I can't stand cheesy pulp
sci-fi. "Woo-hoo! Let's zap the aliens with our laser neutron ray!"
No, actually. Let's not bother.
Films: I don't actually watch films that often. One film I recently
enjoyed was "Delicatessen". I need to watch it a few more times, I
think; you don't have to understand a film to enjoy it!
Music: Mostly electronic dance music in all its various forms. I
particularly enjoy being part of the performance. I'm in no way a
musical bigot, though - I can enjoy anything, if the people and the
atmosphere are right.
Food: Anything! I'm a dedicated omnivore. I'm one of the few people
who will go into a pub, order a cheeseburger, and actually eat the
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
People to have interesting and meaningful discussions with.
Something interesting to think about.
Spending some time alone now and again.
Cool machines to play with.
Fascinating wild creatures to watch.
There's a sixth entry on this list, too, but you'll have to get to
know me quite well to find out what it is.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People, and what can be done about the sorry state of the world
around us. This would be a much more productive endeavour if I
could actually come to some useful conclusions.
Philosophy, and how pointless most of it is.
What time it is, and how long I have to keep working for before I
can go home and do something else.
Computery / mathematical things, such as completing the proof of
omniperiodicity for Conway's Life. I recently won a couple of $100
prizes for discovering a small stable glider reflector. Things like
this, that only half a dozen people in the world care about.
Myself, and why I seem to almost magnetically attract New Age
believers and radical left-wing activists, despite having little in
common with either. Maybe I should lose the dreadlocks, especially
since I'm starting to get a bit thin on top.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In the pub until closing time.
