My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Gentleman scientist that knows how to cook (it's alchemy: turning delicious vegetables into even more delicious food), witty, and warm.

At least that's what all my friends tell me and I see no reason to disbelieve them... which makes me trusting or gullible.

I prefer intimate, meandering conversations in cafés to shouted discussions in bars. I love live music and theater, even if it's bad, as long as it has energy. I prefer wisdom and insight to sarcasm. I value kindness, vulnerability, warmth, and intelligence over almost everything.

I'm well-traveled and travel well. I'm against the death penalty, for the estate tax, against long copyright, for drug legalization, against mediatory minimum, for minimum income.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to have fun, do the needful, enrich the soul, and build cool things that help people, myself included, discover cool things... all at the same time, which is the tricky part.

Every week is bike-to-work week.

I'm working on learning dance, particularly social/ballroom dance. I suck at it. Well, suck is too strong a word. I'm just used to picking up new things more easily than this. :) Plus, a 3 hour class after a full workday leaves me spent.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hugs. Word play. Play on words.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It used to be my hair. Elderly ladies and hobos would comment on it. But I cut it off. The sun damage from biking to and from work was damaging it. It was no longer... shining, gleaming, streaming, etc. After I did, several co-workers told me that I "now look respectable"... which I took to mean that I now look hella straight.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
One of my favorite books is Lord of Light. I love the mix of Hindu mythology, science-fiction/fantasy, and populism. Zelazny can be hit or miss but he hits this one out of the park... and I'm not just saying that because my namesake is in the book. :) It was out of print so I'd buy any copies of it I'd see just so I could share the book with people.

I've never seen a movie that was "so bad, it's good".
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This space intentionally left blank.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Internalizing externalities. This encompasses a lot of issues I care about.

What's the RMSD of bike route to and from work? I bet it's tiny.

How yesterday's "big data" (*eyeroll*) is today's "data" and tomorrows "well, at least multiple testing won't hurt".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I totally used "hella" up there... but I only used it "ironically". I also only use ironically, ironically.

My Shadowrun character is immortalized in the official Shadowrun source books. That granted me +100 to geek cred.

The person I first had sex with didn't believe it was my first time. ... hey, I think I might be getting the hang of this blatant self-promotion thing! To be truthful, it wasn't because I was that good. It was more because I was calm and relaxed. I'm good at being relaxed in weird situations.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Why not? I don't bite... well, I do but only with consent,... which is sexy.
