My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a retired (3rd time), high tech system and network architect, strategist, futurist, ethicist, lecturer, educator, activist, media reformer... and many other things.... I like to keep up with these subjects, and many more, but I'm not ready to come out of retirement, again, just yet. I've had to take care of two disabled adults... (now only one). So, I've got my hands full, but I'm now looking into getting my social life back together. Online, is just not enough; and the occasional date, leaves me too 'hungry'.

Honestly, I'm into so many things, it's even hard for me to keep track. And at this point, it's less likely you'd believe me. That is, not until you give me a chance to show you what I mean. So, I propose you pick one of your favorite subjects, to get the ball rolling, and I'll try to seduce you with what I know of that subject.... Sound fair?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My purpose in this lifetime is based on this concept: 'Communication' is the universal solvent, upon which, all 'understanding' is achieved. 'Communication' is why the Berlin Wall came down... it's why the Soviet Union dissolved... it's why China opened up.... More wars will be stopped because of the Internet, than any other concept before it.... When we are 'freely' able to 'learn about' and 'understand' each other, because of enhanced communication (including translation services), we will evolve to a peaceful majority.

I've been to 26 countries, where I've not only worked on establishing networks, but studied ethnics. I'm insatiable, when it comes to knowledge. I've donated, or given away, several libraries -- I read a lot, and 'apply' most of it, to verify what works best.

I went from being a professional student, to getting in on the beginning of the micro-computer / networking revolution. Ended up becoming an Internet / New Media architect. And though I've focused on philosophy, most of my life, I've found, being a technologist, a noble profession. My purpose in life, is to enhance communication. That's why I'm also an activist. My passions are: Media Reform, Education Reform, Political Reform, True Psychology (which I'm calling 'quantum psychology'; you'll have to ask me about this one) versus the brain-centric, pill pushing, 'water-boarding' snake-oil salesmen, we have today; Futurism, Ethics as a future industry; and many others...

Oh, and then there's my organic gardening. I'm currently practicing something called permaculture -- a sustainable form of living, through natural food production and exchange with your environment. Besides the 'good eats', I exchange the extra food, with friends, family and those who help me take a day off, once in a while. I consider 'growing things' a form of 'creativity', especially when not in a relationship....

Creativity, Imagination, Knowledge, Responsibility, Perception (Awareness), Admiration and a generous sense of 'Aesthetics', is what my life is about. Every day, I try to further develop them all and share them with everyone I can.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Understanding people and things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Most say they like my eyes. But once we start talking, it's my warm understanding that usually takes over. People always enjoy telling me their troubles, secrets and 'joys'.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: see: http://amzn.com/w/UX7U0Z7FQ1QM
I'm a voracious reader. Have been since I was 6.
Movies: a very long eclectic list (still compiling)
Music: an even longer eclectic list (always growing)
Food: Vegan. But I'll date animal eaters, they just don't taste as good... ;-P
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Memory,... That pretty much sums it up... Everything else, I'll have forever, or can easily be replaced. But the recollections of my entire existence; that would hurt a bit. Oh, and maybe my bedroom toys... just kidding... (NOT) ;-P

I read a profile the other day that got me to thinking... So, here are a few more 'things', I'd prefer to 'not' do without:

Knowledge
Wisdom
Aesthetics
Awareness
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I gave up thinking, years ago. You either know something, or you learn enough about it, to satisfy your interests. Everything else, is a waste of time. Thinking, is like the hamster on a circular treadmill... spinning your wheels with the data you have, not necessarily the data you need. A better question for me, would be What subjects am I most interested in, currently? Oh, and looking, is also greatly undervalued...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There's no such thing as a typical Friday night where I'm concerned. I have a little trouble comprehending, doing the same things, over and over again, unless they are 'really, really good things'. Creativity, is the spice of life. I say, 'use your imagination, it's free, isn't it?' Now, if I were with someone special, I could see identifying certain nights of the month, or week, as movie night, or massage night, or anything that would generate a longing anticipation... I think a grooming night could be fun... ;-P
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm willing to share everything, with the right woman. I just don't want to scare away any potential right women... Even a bad boy past, has only to be hinted at, to be effective... All you really have to do, is ask.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If I've tickled your curiosity, even a little... I'm much better, live.
