My self-summary
What can I say, I'm a happy guy, statistically and anecdotally speaking. The reason likely has something to do with this New York Times article, which contends that the happiest man in America is Asian (✔); 5' 10" in height (✔); Jewish (half of my family is); 65 years old (give it a few); has children (would like to); lives in Honolulu (eh, Pittsburgh is on the same "most livable" lists); owns a business (✔); and makes $120,000 a year (getting there). How's that for the embodiment of a theoretical demographic?!?

Lest you get the wrong idea, I'm not "laid back" (so many opportunities, so little time) or "down to earth" (big ideas sometimes require big words), and I certainly don't enjoy relaxing on the couch and watching the TV that I don't own.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on small business-related stuff. Volunteering my expertise and sanity to open source software projects. Watching as many critically acclaimed movies as I can. Lifting weights at the neighborhood gym. Comparison shopping online.
I’m really good at
Building robust, modular software. Making movie recommendations because I'm well watched. Spontaneously gifting things that drastically improve the recipient's well-being. Ejecting people from their comfort zone. Thinking many steps ahead.
The first things people usually notice about me
During the winter, my safari hat, hands down. Failing that, my exquisite oriental features.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I recently finished Thinking, Fast and Slow, and before that the Hunger Games trilogy. My all-time favorites are Brave New World, Guns, Germs, and Steel, and Look Homeward, Angel.

Periodicals - I read the Wall Street Journal and Ars Technica daily.

Movies - I'm somewhat of a film critic and average about two movies per week, with a soft spot for period pieces and character studies. Some favorites include Before Sunrise, Casablanca, Do the Right Thing, Dr. Strangelove, Le Samouraï, and Rear Window.

Shows - I bought all seasons of Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey on iTunes, and I think they are superlative. Also, House of Cards serves as a great reminder why I ♥ Kevin Spacey.

Music - I like folk/pop rock (ABBA, Billy Joel, Leonard Cohen), classical (Mahler, Rachmaninov, Schubert), symphonic metal (Epica, Nightwish), and traditional folk music (American, Celtic, Chinese).

Food - It's hard to go wrong with dining establishments like Dinette, Kiku, Penn Avenue Fish Company, and Thin Man Sandwich Shop. Oh, and Gaucho Parrilla, a recent, most wonderful discovery.
The six things I could never do without
Family and friends - The last time I checked, they still loved me and thought I was a swell guy.

Logic, reason, and empiricism - They hold me back from joining a UFO cult.

Soda maker - After getting a Sodastream Source machine, I stopped drinking flat water and now binge on homemade club soda.

Unlimited smartphone data plan - Having a Wi-Fi hotspot wherever Verizon Guy can get a signal sure beats broadband.

Air conditioning - I didn't realize how important it was until I lived in an apartment without central air.

Mass transit - I'm a wannabe New Yorker and don't own a car. Appropriately so, my place is 20 meters from a grocery store.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... tough problems! If I solve them, everyone potentially saves time and money by not reinventing the wheel. I also ponder really esoteric stuff, like teaching my parents' dog left paw/right paw.
On a typical Friday night I am
... fixing broken software, clearing out my email backlog, engaging in some sort of planning, waging a Twitter war of words, watching a Redbox movie, and/or drinking whiskey neat or as a Manhattan.

Tl;dr: The same thing we do every night, Pinky...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I take a large dose of Resveratrol daily, with the aim of living longer and staying healthy. So far, so good: There have been no ill effects, and I haven't been sick in three years (placebo effect possible).
