My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
`Consider again that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar", every "supreme leader", every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there - on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.' - Sagan
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm taking a sabbatical from a PhD program to work at a startup.

I think a lot about the future and my place in society as a technical person. We live in the Anthropocene, and I find that both exciting and terrifying.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making lists, checking them twice.

coming to grips with my own mortality.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"Where did the rest of you go?"

I've been frequently complemented on the unusually vertical nature of my hair. Nope, I don't know why it does that either.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books (recent): Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, The Right Stuff, Newton and the Counterfeiter, On Food and Cooking, Real World Haskell, SICP,Quantum Statistical Properties of Radiation.

Internet Reading: Metafilter, Reddit, Boing Boing , NYTimes, The Economist, arXiv, Arts and Letters Daily, Hacker News, Arstechnica, SMBC, Perry Bible Fellowship, xkcd ...

Movies: My current favorite old movies are Touch of Evil and Arsenic and Old Lace. For something recent, I'd say it's a toss-up between There Will Be Blood, The Thing, and Fantastic Mr. Fox. I really like kitschy horror from the 1980s, Coen brothers' and John Hughes' films, and anime (e.g., Miyazaki: Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind; Satoshi Kon: Paprika; Ghost in the Shell, Akira, etc.).

Shows: TV? Three years ago, I think I watched all of Arrested Development and tried to keep up with Battlestar Galactica and True Blood: I failed miserably. Futurama, Adventure Time, Seinfeld, Cowboy Bebop, No Reservations, The Daily Show, and the American version of The Office all come to mind too. I still listen to Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me on NPR every Saturday.

Games: Japanese RPGs, particularly Final Fantasy (IV on SNES -> XII), Metal Gear Solid (1->4), Xenogears, and all these emulated ones (like Tales of Phantasia) that never came out in the US. Way back in grade school, I rocked Windows 95 and every non-FPS PC adventure game I could get my hand on: Myst, Riven, Betrayal at Antara, Age of Empires 2, Deus Ex, etc. I have fond memories of Math Blaster. For physical games: Xactika, chess, Settlers of Catan, and chess.

Music: You should make an account on Spotify, if you haven't already. I gravitate towards international vocalists, electronic music, film soundtracks, classical music (almost entirely Russian composers), progressive rock, and classic/revival genres (e.g., jazz and `neo-jazz', whatever that means).

Foods: vegetables, ethnic foods, New American, anything homemade. I generally don't eat sweets, but I do shower them on others. I cook a lot, and have surprisingly long-term goals about getting better at it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
friends; honesty/responsibility/integrity; stimulation; self-actualization; "home"; objective notions of reality; exercise/physical activity; Unix
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
synthesis; hypotheticals; lateral applications of physics to engineering; cooking and food science; humanism; functional programming; current events; our emerging cyberpunk future; political economics and science/technology, and their effects on society; metalearning skills; discopharmacology.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
extremely disappointed that Julian Assange no longer has an OKC profile.

My Friday nights are low key, and I generally spend them with friends or work on something not school-related. I'm currently excited about using syringes, bulk transglutaminase, and an X-Y table to build a 3D-printer for meat. Don't you want a desktop chicken-statue additive manufacturing apparatus!?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are open-minded, inquisitive, accepting of others, and like talking about ideas and/or want to interact outside the Matrix.

you like blueberry muffins, and anything tangentially related to them, like hummus, brocolli, or soup dumplings.

you know a good word for `something virtual made physical or real.'

you are skilled at lucid dreaming and want to talk about those experiences. I'm super-interested if you've been able to deliberately levitate objects or read real, but previously-unread, books in your dreams.

you like raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles, and/or warm woolen mittens, but neither silver white winters that melt into springs nor brown paper packages tied up with strings.
