Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm going to try to define myself implicitly and let everyone draw
their own conclusions.
I love the elegance and purity of Math and the Technological
pursuits. I love the abstract and the base, the superspecialised
and the universally applicable. I love words that define a concept
in one term. I love the idea and promise of memetics. I love
Singing, with songs constantly going through my head I often don't
hesitate to let them out. I love links and associations between
thoughts. I love Pop Culture and High Culture, the uncultured, and
yoghurt is tasty, especially when frozen. I dream big and hate that
95% of what flies through my brain never sees tangibility. I'm not
afraid to use Love and Hate and take them back when I no longer
mean them. I'm a child at heart and an old soul. I like Iconics and
Italics and caps lock is cruise control for awesome. I hate beating
a dead horse and don't like to feel like I've lost. I have a short
memory for slights but a long one for faces. I love playing the
fool and getting down to business. I love the axiomatic and the
ornate, the cliché and the original. I'm overly critical,
especially of myself. I shift between strict veganism and not
caring at all. I like suits and ties and tattoos and
Looking back at this, I've done a horrible job, but don't see how I
could have done better. I'm a rolling boulder of a 1000 faces
traveling inexorably towards the end of the y axis, and I'm looking
for people to roll along with me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work fulltime but when I'm bored (harhar) I like to take a course
here and there to further my education.
I'm in the process of:
- working and blogging about getting back into shape, going Paleo,
and daily meditation practice.
- practicing Guitar
- learning German
- writing a novel
I am also involved with some tech startups in town, and also run my
own consulting company. Used to consult fulltime, but then one of
my clients put a ring on it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I sing. A lot, mostly just humming or a couple of bars of whatever
is going through my head.

I love music, all kinds of music, all the time. Love to read and
I'm not too picky, though I really enjoyed the books by Jasper
Fforde, as well as Douglas Adams, and I enjoyed the Honor
Harrington series by David Weber. Oh, and everything Cory Doctorow
and William Gibson have ever written. The three hardcopy books I
always have, though, are my 2nd edition of Erewhon by Samuel
Butler, a copy of the Diamond Sutra, and a copy of Thoreau's
Walden. Everything else is slowly becoming digital.
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.
why things are the way they are, what make things work the way they
do. I'm also interested in minimalism
- thinking about how to reduce
my footprint, and use technology
to improve and streamline
how we live.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
working on one of my projects, or out with friends for a drink or

A lot of my relationships have ended because I'm very very busy.
But I don't know what to give up, and sometimes I wonder if my life
is too full for a relationship or that I just haven't met the right
person and if I did that wouldn't be an issue.
