My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am atheistic, creative, and far from home. (for those who remember the three adjective form on OKC)

I come in a variety of flavors of geek - separately and sometimes simultaneously - coding, language (well, C++ mostly), geometry/computer graphics, computer gaming, board gaming, tabletop gaming. Other than that I've been known to hike, ski, snowboard, dance (club or pair/social (ceroc, salsa)).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In February 2012, after 6 years at Microsoft near Seattle, WA I moved down to the Bay Area, California to work for Google (for those in the know, I'm working on the Clang C++ compiler (http://clang.llvm.org)). Found some frisbee to play (summer hat league at work) & instant social circle including a good friend of mine from Sydney who's working in the same area (geographically & project-wise)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Analysing & solving problems. Preferably logical ones, nice neat things that can be reasoned about. Human problems are often shaded by emotion & issues that are harder to deal with.. but I guess that's what makes life so much fun.. (he says with a hint of sarcasm).

I think I'm getting better at understanding other people, though still a bit of a ways to go understanding the more emotional side of myself. The reasoned part is easier :) Open to suggestions/comments/criticisms on either though.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The simple ones - my height and/or my accent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
books) "Stranger in a Strange Land", "I, Robot"
movies) "Lock, Stock, & Two Smoking Barrels", "The Fifth Element", "Leon: The Professional"
music) bits & pieces of everything - but to name some names: Regina Spektor, The Cat Empire, Coheed & Cambria.
food) Pasta (pesto, bolognese, carbonara), good beef sausages, apricot chicken
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People & problems. (not problems related to people necessarily, just the two separately)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Since getting to San Jose I'm not sure I have a typical just yet - but either out at a nice bar with workmates (not necessarily just Googlers - since I work on open source software there's people at Apple & other local companies I work with regularly) or over at a friends place hacking on code (for fun & profit/work), watching Arrested Development (we've moved on to How I Met Your Mother), or some console gaming.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–36
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a bit of a geek. Have some kind of non-mainstream, possibly technical (doesn't have to be computers, though at least being able to follow some general ranting about algorithms/programming languages is a plus), interests both inside & outside work (the same in both domains is ok. "Find a job you love & you won't have to work for the rest of your life" (I'm sure that's a misquote, but no matter)). Possibly someone that can tolerate, and possibly even be amused by, multiple parenthetical comments, asides, and random diversions.

Try watching some "Ross Noble" for a sense of how conversations could go, if I were somewhat more quick-witted/random. As it is they tend to be varied, structured, and I answer almost every point - so email threads can sometimes spiral out of hand if we talk a lot. In which case meeting in person might be a good idea.
