My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I value transparency, honesty, and empathy.

I live to learn. I want to learn it all!

I reset my OKC question today (Mar. 30, 2014). I feel that I've grown and changed so much since the last time I answered these questions that many answers fail to reflect my current self.

I love Kimchi Cuddles. It's a great resource for considering several angles on polyamory and gender-awareness, while still being cute.

I'm fascinated by mathematics, I'm absorbed by programming, and I'm curious about all of the sciences.

I'm cautious around labels. When someone says "liberal" or "conservative", it means nothing to me until you've defined what that means to you.

I'm wary of public media. Cable television often disgusts me, and I never watch it. The news is best absorbed at my pace. I often use Facebook/Twitter to get my news in the form of my social network.

I'm aware of *-shaming, several *isms, and I try to increase awareness of these things. It's unfortunate that people continue to find ways to hate each other, when we should be finding more ways to work together.

I'm an introvert. I tend to keep to myself. I often (silently) carry great gratitude for those that are dear to me, and eventually express it by feeding them. I'm getting better about expressing this gratitude with words.

Religion scares me. I tolerate it in others, but I prefer to keep it far and away from me. I'm convinced that it's a poison. The best things that have come of religion are an excuse to bring people together and form communities - but there are better and healthier ways to bring people together: co-ops, community recreation centers, libraries, meetup groups, etc.

March 31, 2013: On Being Me
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Programming - professionally and recreationally! I love contributing to open source projects, and am fortunate that I can do so in large part for a living. I aim to have greater impact over time in this area, and help others find their place in/with technology.

Advocacy and outreach, a little bit at a time. I'm learning about equality in many forms: feminism, gender, race, identity, and being an ally. It's uncomfortable at times, and that makes it all the more valuable.

I'm advocating for the adoption of typed, functional programming languages. I'm happy to talk Haskell and friends.

I want to teach some day. I've taught before in college as a teaching assistant, but in the future, I want to teach in a more personal setting. More like an individual-driven lab.

I'm learning who I am and what it means to be me. I'm seeking meaning by talking to others, writing in the public (I maintain at least three blogs), and opening up. My goal is to eventually live in such a way that I'm no longer afraid to be myself, no matter what.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
* Programming
* Learning
* Dance games (DDR, ITG)
* Getting tasks done
* Talking tech and tech strategy
* Old-school platformers (Mega Man, Mario, etc.)
* Doing silly dances for no reason at all
* Zoning out
* Concentrating
* Breaking out of dichotomies
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my hair. It's getting pretty long.

That I wear skirts. <3
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Let's go for a top 5 per category!

* Books (99.9% non-fiction): (Update: Jun. 17, 2014)
1. Types and Programming Languages
2. Type Theory and Functional Programming
3. Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs
4. Practical Foundations of Programming Languages
5. Homotopy Type Theory

A note on book choice - I read almost exclusively non-fiction. The reason being, is that I want to soak in facts. I want to swim in new information, and turn the ideas around in my head all day long.

* Music:
1. Super Hexagon OST
2. Guardian Legend OST
3. Megaman
4. Ragnarok Online OST

I *adore* game music.

* Food:
1. Beef burgers
2. Yellow curry chicken
3. Scrambled eggs w/ bacon
4. Pork chops w/ caramelized onion
5. Buttered, pan-fried salmon

I try to limit my intake of carbohydrates, as they cause me some trouble. I do love pizza, though. Cheesecake, too.

* Video Games:
1. Diablo 2: Median XL
2. Path of Exile
3. Magicite
4. Secrets of Grindea

I'm rather fond of looting en mass. Torchlight 2 was on this list for some time, but lost out since it has trouble running on Linux (through Wine) and was too slow paced.

* Software Tools:
1. emacs
2. haskell
3. git
4. pandoc
5. gnome-terminal

I'm a terminal kind of person. The command line trumps fancy graphical interfaces in almost every case.

* Programming Languages:
1. Haskell
2. Python
3. C

Haskell - a vision of the future that taught me how to love math and programming in ways I didn't know I could. Static-typing, reasonably fast compilation, and a type system that puts most common programming languages to shame. I'm in love with purity, monads, functors, and applicatives. I want to write all the things in this language. Something like this is the future of software. Ask me about typed, functional programming languages. I've presented on them.

Python - a longterm commitment with a great community. I've learned it's ins and outs and about its history and community. It tries my patience lately.

C - the native tongue of most operating systems, the modern assembly layer. Sometimes, and only rarely, do I have to drop down to this level, always in the name of performance.

Long ago, C++ was on this list. After my world view grew, I learned to loathe the language. It has many corner cases, it has poor expressiveness, and using it as the "performance level" seals off interfacing into higher level languages easily. I'm of the firm opinion that it's a shame that so much software is written in this language today.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. You Lovely Humans
2. Linux Computer
3. Learning
4. Sex
5. Creating
6. Affection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Programming, all of its nuances, and more so over time, its relationship to all things.

Feminism, intersectionality, privilege, gender, identity, and what it means to be human in a society that tries to constrain, box, and silence.

Advocacy, and how to effectively spread knowledge and awareness.

Networking, how to concisely express an idea in 140 characters, and connecting to others on some channel/level.

Self-development, what I want to do with my life, how I affect those around me, and why I am the way I am right now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Winding down from a long week of work. It's a little bit of down time, which is nice.

I often spend it near Cloverlimes. I'll probably play a game, read a book, eat some food, and stay in. I'm very much about staying at home and relaxing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think hard before displaying affection to new people. It's likely I'm wondering if it's okay to hug you, and more recently, I'm happy to ask where boundaries lay.

I haven't used shampoo, soap, or conditioner in over two years. My skin and my hair have both grown to be healthier than ever before. I still use hand soap when preparing food, though.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to talk. I'm open to long distance relationships. Tell me about your world. I'd love to learn from you, and maybe I've got something interesting to share, too.
