My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Basically, I'm a nerd with a conscience.

I have a lot of different interests: in no particular order--graphic design, government, computers, economics, languages, writing, the media, medicine...pretty much anything in the news. I have a bad habit of starting books but never finishing them, though I'm trying to get better about that.

I have a small circle of close friends. I've been called assertively "mild-mannered," which sounds about right. Albus Dumbledore had it down: the no-nonsense, yet-wholly-unassuming approach to life.

When I'm not being serious, the Muppets are awesome, and so are Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. (And not just because they're funny.)

אני מנסה ללמוד עברית יותר.

научился кириллицы для удовольствия. К сожалению, я не знаю, что означает что-нибудь (если это не звучит как-английски)!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Fighting the good fight. The world is kind of messed up, and I'm doing what I can to make it better.

Along those lines, I write software. And occasionally, legal briefs.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Figuring out who is genuine and who isn't, predicting the future about ten years out (when it comes to technology, anyway), diagnostics, dispelling myths, deciding quickly, and distinguishing between TrueType and PostScript on public signage.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I like colorful shirts.

I've been told that I'm really good at picking friends.

In general, I have strong opinions, but I can substantiate them.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Close friends, The New York Times (MINUS DAVID BROOKS! ALSO MINUS FARHAD MANJOO!), 100% real orange juice, a double-barreled shotgun with which to shoot airborne pancakes, a functioning laptop computer, and soundtracks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What's going on in the news, computers, the legal system, medicine. Also, why all business schools and law schools should be bulldozed, their ashes set aflame and launched off the planet Earth without delay.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably eating Indian food with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like lemons.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I like people who take initiative, aren't afraid of difficult problems, who see shades of gray where most people just see black and white or nothing at all, and have a sense of humor.

Basically, if you've seen The Constant Gardener, and you think you're like Tessa (except alive)...then you should definitely message me! Or if you haven't and yet you still aren't afraid to after reading all of this.
