My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
UPDATE: 2.5 years ago, I met my linguistic doppelgänger and we're seeing each other. Looking for friendship, but we are always up for adventures and living the fullest life possible, whatever that may mean. After two years (and a few episodes of catharsis), we've reached the point where we accept that we have sexual needs that go beyond what a single individual can fulfill, so we now beginning to explore the idea of being able to play alone with others as well.

UPDATE 2: I no longer have the epic mustache. I'm just as awesome, but now much more kissable.

Me? hyperthymic. iconoclast. polymath.

I pride myself in being a renaissance man ... a jack-of-all-trades and
master of none. If I adopt a hobby or skill I will almost always learn it well enough to be above average, but I'll often stop there. I'm far too ADD to stick to an activity until perfection, except with a few passions of mine. Just to give you an example, just a little sample, I majored in Textile Technology and Fashion/Apparel Management and in Psychology with a few credits shy of a Physics minor and Math minor in college. My plan was to work in fashion, but I ended up on Wall Street, before abandoning that ship to work in tech, where I couldn't be happier.

I read a lot about everything. Once you get me going on a subject
it can be hard to shut me up. My friends tell me that I have an
uncanny ability to traverse all levels of abstraction on any given
topic. Despite the fact that I love to talk, I'm an excellent
listener and have lots of people coming to me for advice from
career advice to relationship advice (the latter is ironic because
I rarely date)

I'm hyperlogical, even to a fault at times. I love thinking about
the relative risk/reward tradeoffs of everything. I like the
science and psychology of decision making.

I'm not in the least bit emotional. I never really get sad or
jealous. I rarely get angry. In fact, I can't really remember the
last time I got mad. I'm very anti-drama and will actively try to
avoid it in my life. I don't worry about anything that is beyond my

I love making others happy before myself. I hold the door open for
everyone and let people off first on the metro. I'm often the first
to offer my seat to old people on public transportation. I derive
more pleasure from the pleasure of others than things that directly
satisfy me. Making other people smile is awesome.

I'm incapable of taking anything seriously except work. Everything
else is fair game for being mocked or joked about. I love sarcasm
and irony. I enjoy wordplay as much as foreplay. I'm often the
first person to laugh, even at myself after doing something dumb
and absentminded like walking into a glass door.

I like strong, independent women that know what they want and are
happy by themselves. However, I have this unfortunate tendency to
attract women that get really clingy and obsess over me. I like my
sister's explanation the best: "They think you're playing hard to
get, but you're actually just socially awkward when it comes to
relationships." I'm hoping that the combination of OKCupid and
moving to San Francisco will dramatically improve this situation.
OkCupid offered slim pickin' in places I previously lived. Now
looking at all the wonderful, beautiful people in SF, the future looks bright as there are many intensely involved in hobbies and intellectual pursuits.

Politically, I'm a centrist. I have leftist ideals, but often find
myself in favor of right-leaning approaches when it comes to the
economic quandaries. I'm a total technosocialist and believe that
technology coupled with capitalism/entrepreneurship can solve many of the economic ills of the day. I'm very interested in anything
and everything related to the creation of a peer-to-peer
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently the first employee at a series-B funded startup creating a javascript runtime and SDK for highly performant web apps. Basically, we're making apps on web pages work as fast as the apps you install from the iTunes AppStore.

I really really love my job and what I have the pleasure of building at the company. Specifically, I'm making a new distributed version control system that uses an approach that to my knowledge no one has yet attempted. And this low-level component is actually going to also serve as the foundation of an entire knowledge graph and teaching system. If you're a software engineer and know what npm, git and SLIME mode in emacs are, I'm building something that combines those three into one.

It's going to be awesome, because if it all works out, I'm going to increase the productivity of hundreds of thousands if not millions of developers one day. No "Pinterest for Cats" bullshit tech company here.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
finding anything ... literally anything (information and physical things).

Friends have often called me "Andrewpedia", and I'm often the first person people ask when they need the answer to a question. If I don't already know the answer, I at least know where to find it.

If you need something, if no one else can help, and if you can find me, maybe you can hire... The Andrew (insert A-Team theme song here)

Used to be my mustache.

Now, most people notice my big smile and my teeth. In fact, when I was younger my nickname was "Smiley" for most of my life. I also have a smile on my face, but it's a versatile smiley ranging from mischievous to innocent and from ecstatic to relaxed. Because of my smile I've always been a terrible liar, so I don't even bother trying to lie.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Catch 22 is probably my favorite fiction book. These days I spend most of my time reading non-fiction. When I'm not coding or sleeping, I spend most of my time reading. I'm a total sponge for knowledge. I'd like to get around to reading more fiction these days, but I'm completely absorbed in my startup at the moment, so most of my reading revolves around that. I also spend far too much time reading Hacker News or Quora.

My favorite movie is probably Cinema Paradiso (the original version and not the extended version with the love story that only detracts from the main story). I'm man enough to admit that this movie makes be bawl every time. I also enjoy a good yarn such as Kubrick's Barry Lyndon (such an underrated film)

Although I still enjoy the occasional movie, I quit watching TV in February, 2002. When I do watch a TV show, it's usually a downloaded episode of The Simpsons, Big Bang Theory, Southpark or Futurama. If you ask me about anything else on TV nowadays, I'll probably just stare at you with a blank look in my eyes. I really have no idea what's on TV these days.

Music? Everything. Actually almost anything. I like pretty much anyone who is an artist, but I'm not too keen on performers. The former create something new and original to share with the World. The latter generally takes a sound that already exists and performs it well, but they don't necessarily expand upon the World of music. I've found that the more music I listen to that the more music I enjoy and appreciate. There's hardly any original music now that I don't enjoy. Zappa to Xenakis. Kraftwerk to The Kinks. Captain Beefheart to Beethoven to the Buzzcocks. The Damned to The Doors to Devo. The Misfits to M83. Yes to Yello to Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Alan Parsons to Elvis Presley. Vive la fete to Visage.

My favorite types of food are those that are spicy and typically contain coconut milk, which are basically Indian, Thai and Northeastern Brazilian food. I love a good Brazilian Feijoada. I cook the best pork you've ever eaten. I'll bet on that (I've never lost this bet). I'm willing compete in a pork-off with the best of them.

I also love inventing completely crazy dishes such as chocolate chili, raspberry omelettes, etc. While I like thinking of dishes that exist and asking "why?", I much prefer to dream of new dishes and ask "Why not?". The meal of the day I most enjoy cooking is breakfast. Who knows? if everything goes well, might end up cooking you breakfast one day.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My imagination
2) My curiosity
3) The interwebs and books
4) The beach
5) Good food
6) Traveling and exploring the World
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
everything. Literally everything. I'm particularly fascinated by interpersonal interactions, dyadic relationships, propinquity and how technology, physical spaces and digital spaces impact those social psychology phenomena.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
doing the same thing I do every night: trying to take over the world... Mwa...ha...ha...ha...HA...HA...HA!!!!

Somethings trying to take over the World involves discussing my plans for doing so with some friends over drinks. Want to take over the World with me?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Because I get cold really easily and I'm not yet used to the San Francisco weather, I am often wearing some sort long-underwear. Because of the cold in this city, I'm pretty open to the idea of lots of cuddling at the moment :P

Besides that, I'm an extremely public person. In fact I'm a big believer that everyone should be more public because it creates connections and breeds tolerance. There's not much other than those things that occur in the bedroom that I'm not willing to admit publicly. Most of my opinions on a variety of subjects are public and you can find out a lot about me by simply searching for my full name, "Andrew de Andrade".

On the topic of publicness, I highly encourage everyone to watch Jeff Jarvis' brilliant presentation "Publicness, Privacy and Penises" that he gave at the Re:publica conference in Germany in 2010. I've yet to see a more compelling argument for the publicness than that. It was so well-received that it made it to the front page of three major German newspapers the following day. Here's the link:

In fact, I'd say that OkCupid is a perfect example of the value of being public.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're smarter than the average bear, funnier than family guy, more curious than George, crazier than Gary Busey, and naughtier than Dita Von Teese.

Many bonus points if you can program as well.

I'm also actually 100% cool if all you want is to be a friend and activity partner. I'm new the the area and I'm all about meeting awesome people. I just ask that you let me know from the get go that this is what you want just so I know what boundary to respect.

Nota bene: Yes, I have "looking for casual sex" listed under things I'm looking for - although I have a girlfriend, so this is more generally speaking. It's not the only thing I look for and it's there in the interest of honesty. Seriously, ladies, if this turns you off then you are simply in denial and interested mythical creatures like saints and leprechauns. 99% of guys that omit that from the list of things they are looking for aren't being completely forward with you. To put it another way, it's like looking for a guy whose profile says that he never pees in the shower. I wouldn't trust them any farther than I could throw them.
