My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
People often get butterflies in my presence. If that comes across as arrogant, perhaps you take me a bit too figuratively.

I get along best with kids who call me up asking what I'm doing right now and who aren't often falling asleep before 2am. Planning and waking up before noon are challenges I struggle with only when necessary.

My favorite activities involve friends and some combination of music, stories, sweat, or body contact.

I type dvorak. I compose programs, mostly using javascript, Haskell and R these days. Hopefully I'll find room for a LISP sometime.. I love open source software and anything in the Creative Commons. I am a transhumanist and would eventually like to find some way to do my part to bring about my future technotopia.

NeonTigerOnTop says my bites are magical. Or mundane. The difference seems to be how they develop. She also says I call her "incredibly open". She's right; it's not credible. I prefer to think she's relentlessly explicit.

I live in Cole Valley with a pair of cats named Guenhwyvar and Nova.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Recommending a free song every day to whoever cares. Going to shows. Having strangers crash in my space. Reading books. Drinking delicious beers.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Analyzing an argument. Being cute. Talking in statistics. Thinking in abstractions. Hedging and qualifying.

I've been told I turn making out into an art form.
I've independently been told that I "make making out more fun than it's supposed to be." To the point where it harms reproductive fitness.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If you meet me, you may notice some potent combination of advanced height, enthusiastic exegesis, gangly limbs, or curly brown hair with hands frequently moving through it.

You're also likely to note that I'm not looking at you when I'm talking or listening to you. It takes conscious effort for me to make eye contact.

I've watched these talks more than most of my favorite movies:
Escape From the Ivory Tower: The Haskell Journey, From 1990 to 2011 by Simon Peyton Jones.
Are we in control of our decisions? by Dan Ariely.
Are droids taking our jobs? by Andrew McAfee.

Lately I've become obsessed with somegreybloke. I especially like when he talks about Jesus or neighborhood children.

Genres: mostly indie rock/pop, a good amount of jazz, abstract contemporary chamber music stuff, some electronic/ambient/house, some hip hop, a little classical, a little metal. For more specifics consult or my daily download recommendations.

Most of the live music I experience seems to be classical, jazz, or experimental.

Here are some free songs that sometimes cause my brain to leak:
* The Motorist by Arms and Sleepers.
* Spanish Gold, 2044 and A Hand At Dusk by Swan Lake
* State of Non-Return by Om.
* Lemonade by CocoRosie
* Cloud of Evil by Blackout Beach
* Artsy by edIT and The Grouch
* Cold Cold Water by Mirah
* My Favorite Mutiny by The Coup.
* Straw Man, Anomaly, and Let's Get Bloody by State Shirt. That last tune is entirely performed live by one person.
* Winged/Wicked Things by Sunset Rubdown.
* Move by Sol Seppy
* P.O.S. Is Ruining My Life by P.O.S.
* Bicycle by Memory Tapes.
* Hero and Nothing To Me by Jeris.

Streaming stuff worth listening to:
Still Life by Opeth is one of my favorite albums to make out to.
Híbakúsja by Ben Frost is one of most intense aural experiences I've found.
Ornithopters by The Whiskers is the sort of song I'd like to sing karaoke.

Eating is a consistent hassle I would be happy to do away with.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything is hilarious. naming tells me this, and I believe that he is wise in this manner.

The future. This can mean: figuring out how I'm going to accomplish all the shit I gotta do, wondering how I should amuse myself tonight, speculating about those around me, or pondering where technological advancement, social trends, and our own spending/eating/breeding habits might lead us.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
lately, enjoying mostly pleasant solitude. Or working up a sweat, moving in time.

Many many Saturdays ago I helped mereconsequence orchestrate a Robot Apocalypse Journey to the End of the Night. I played an evil professor scientist who got murdered on stage by a revenge-seeking daughter who snuck on to our escaping airship as an android. It was obscenely fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People occasionally mistakenly think I wear makeup. I find makeup unattractive on myself and on others, so I don't wear any unless I'm in costume (and rarely then).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are interested in playing Sorcerer or Universalis.

You'd like to point me at an awesome concert. Even better if it's a regular series. Extra bonus if you take me to shows by ensembles who perform Xenakis, Reich, &ct, or performers who sound like Sten Sandell or Frank Rosaly. No genres excluded.

Bisexual, Switch, 25-45, and non-monogamous is optimal.

You don't need certainty. I may be allergic to it. I suspect a large part of the skill of living is managing uncertainty.

You want to find yourself in the park when it is pitch dark and make out like the sparks are the only thing saving you from the slavering jaws of a wandering grue.

I prefer people who are complex, so if your real or imaginary parts are zero, you might look elsewhere. Unless they're both zero. I like that kind of originality.

I want to meet folks in person. I'm much more likely to respond if you are in reach of BART, or at least willing to meet me places that are in reach of BART.

You are looking for Everybody.

You'd like to hang out with me and neontigerontop together. We don't typically come together, but we like it when it happens.
