I'm a scientist at heart, get a thrill from discovery and understanding, and I think genetic engineering will help save our species. I'm also a skeptic and I'll want to see the data to back up the conclusion; extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
I'm dyed-in-the-wool geek. I like music played on old floppy disk drives and Tesla coils, modern designer board games, songs about Code Monkeys, Star Trek and real technology inspired by Star Trek. I think Big Bang Theory is cringe-inducingly offensive.
I'm not spiritual or religious, but the idea that "we are all made of star stuff" is deeply satisfying and humbling. I feel only greater wonder at the Universe to look out and see atoms dance and forces at work.
