My self-summary
I'm a very busy Information Technology professional. I am involved in various civic activities. I enjoy cultural activities such as theater and performance art, music, movies, and museums, but not as frequently as I would like. I am a soccer referee, which gives me incentive to engage in fitness activities. I prefer cycling but I use a treadmill if the weather or time does not permit. I use weights very carefully as I am not looking to get bigger.
I'm not a TV snob and I watch when I can. I also read and I listen to audio books in the car.
If the question is "Would you consider..." the answer is almost always yes. If the question is "Would you..." then that is an entirely different story.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm living it.
I’m really good at
Pattern recognition, lie detection, and acting. Unfortunately, I suck at memorizing scripts and I hate improv (not improvization). I also have certain technical skills and pretty decent dexterity for an old guy.
I make my living solving problems, usually with technology. I'm really good at explaining technology in plain English.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'll have to take a survey.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
In no particular order:
Hendrix, The Wire, Blade Runner, Breaking Bad, Moby Dick, Roxy Music, Burn Notice, chicken, sweet potatoes, China Mieville, Son House, Herman Melville, popcorn, Makers Mark Bourbon, Bombay Gin (no not Sapphire), Anchor Steam, Intelligentsia Coffee, sushi
The six things I could never do without
My kids (like everyone else), books (physical and audio), music, food, exercise, and sex.
A thousand words... Now I have to reassess. I thought some people were just verbose. OK so maybe some people could do without their kids or grandchildren (one in my case). Probably no one will believe that I can get by without computers and coffee, but I could. I wouldn't like it but I could.
By food, I meant the good stuff, not basic sustenance, which like air and water are essential to survival.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Religion, complex systems, set theory, algorithms, game theory
Later...
Oddly enough, all of these things are abundantly present here. How convenient.
I'll expand on game theory a little, including the way that it is included in some profiles here in what I call the "No Games Game". Is it possible to prohibit the game while playing it? The referee in me thinks not, but I'm open minded.
Oh, I almost forgot; politics, especially in conjunction with game theory.
On a typical Friday night I am
since I don't have a routine, who knows... Most of the time on the third Friday of the month I am at a meeting. I guess that's kind of a routine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I got nasty habits, I take tea at three.
You should message me if
you aren't rule driven and you're willing to be brilliant. You should be physically appealing too. Unfortunately, I can't give you any clues on that because I decide each case individually. Oh yeah, you should have some sense of the difference between irony and sarcasm. Also, if you know that message is a noun and not a verb and you believe that this still matters.
