My self-summary
I am quite nerdy, and obviously not afraid to admit that. Programming since I was 10 would probably have that effect, making computer languages seem like a second language for me. (The dreams I had one where I was inside Emacs were quite bizarre, but colorful.)

If reading Wikipedia counted as continuing education, I would probably be on my 3rd PHD by now. I love finding out new things about the world, or how things work. I tend to end up on articles describing military vessels from the first half of the 20th century, though. (Not to be confused with a nuclear wessle, though)

I spent a year studying Japanese in Japan, which was an incredible experience, and I definitely want to go back. I am in Colorado for a while. (Well, since "Here" is relative, at any given time I would be "here" from my point of view)
What I’m doing with my life
Making software. Currently it is project based, so the languages and details are constantly in flux.

Biking on my titanium road bike. I am doing as many road classics as I can, from Elephant Rock to Tour of the Moon.
I’m really good at
Misunderstanding people. If there is a way to mis-parse what someone said in a way they didn't intend, I will find that way:
"Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana."

Making analogies that deanthropomorphize people. And using large, not-quite made up words.

Biking in snow; it is a lot of fun, if difficult at times.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite movies:
Hell's Angels (1930), and Tron(1982).

Books: Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson. Flatland by Ediwn A. Abott.
The six things I could never do without
For the most part:

Oxygen, Hydrogen, Carbon, silicon, copper, and iron in many, many different forms. (They are small "things", and I certainly have a lot of them.)
And a few other elements.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I could be in impossible parallel universes. The 90s TV show "Sliders" is a great example of this. Would I be the guy always driving the cab, or in some universes would I be president, evil dictator, QB for the Broncos?
You should message me if
you know how the names Nyquist and Hertz are related.

Or want to go biking.
