My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My life trajectory has been MN -> RI -> MA -> CA, and my feelings about that are CA > MA > RI > MN. The Gallup poll folk seem to think I have no variance not accounted for by the following: single, no dependents, highly likely to vote, not religiously affiliated, never shop at Walmart, and "do not consider myself a NASCAR fan." What Gallup probably doesn't realize, however, is that I'm also impressively bad at jumping rope, and I buy wineglasses based solely on the tonal clarity of their clinks.

Love love love love music, language, tall buildings, and elegant graphs.

Especially on the lookout for scruffy polyglot nerds with high emotional IQs. If you know any, please send them my way.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
• sciencing data at a startup (cog-psych-tech-oriented)
• using bullet points
• learning cello and discovering it's hard to teach an old dog new clefs
• playing with magnets
• studying too many languages at once to get any good at any of them
• pretending on the treadmill to be a robot sent back through time to save humanity's future
• memorizing various items
I’m really good at

(a) Cat's Cradle, other Vonnegut, Catch 22, Rabbit Run, The Plague, The Road, Eat Drink and be Healthy, Ecotopia, Word Freak, The Superorganism, Ezra Klein's and Paul Krugman's blogs.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Stereo with decent speakers, an instrument of some kind, a bike that works or is fixable with simple tools, simple tools, adequate warmth, dictionaries.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I like the song "Unsent" by Alanis Morissette.
