I'm apparently also Famous On The Internet for writing Silver Goggles, a blog on anti-racism and postcolonialism in steampunk. I write genre fiction and poetry (double whammy, I know). The most recent thing with me in it is Vintage Tomorrows, a book on steampunk. I sew and garden as part of how I do steampunk (bricolage approach to life in creating something new and more pleasing out of the old).
I'm from Malaysia and as such work on articulating a Malaysian-specific feminist ethos, among other things. I think I'm liberal, according to Western frames of thinking, and am prolly also a dirty socialist, since I hang out with dirty anarchists. I like things that mess with dominant paradigms. As a result, I am a firm believer in Moff's Law, and that can't-be-neutral-on-a-moving-train principle.
Non-nerdy things I do resembling normalcy involve clubbing, hiking (or long walks), silly little crafts, modeling (commercial and art nudes), and vegetating quietly. I've also traveled widely, and am starting a little garden on my patio.
