Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I actually live in Portland full time, and I'll be in Eugene Friday
night with the evening off, and I thought it would be awesome to
have an interesting date! I've never had the chance to meet any of
the beautiful women in Eugene. Let's meet up and talk about
projects and art too big to accomplish alone, and leave all buzzed
with new ideas!
Also, this profile is SUPER old - I've updated it to say that I'm
in an open relationship, though regarding Friday in Eugene I'm
simply looking for a fun night out doing pirate mail/letter
I have a number of great projects, but not on a particular
schedule. As long as I get my tasks done, I can meet for lunches,
dinners, happy hours.
I have had several careers - I was a Seattle bike messenger while I
got my undergrad, then worked special ed while I got a masters in
teaching, then taught in public and private schools. Now I'm
running a business, making art and working on my dissertation,
focusing on how we would organize math education for the next
I ask everyone 'what do you make?' - this is a better choice than
'what do you do?' - it speaks to the heart of their growth and
interest in the world. Let's make some things!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I need to write my dissertation proposal. My business is running
itself. I have a 15-year-old who lives with me, which is great
because he's old enough to run his own life.
I have art I'm working on, fiction and non-fiction I'm reading and
writing, and computer modeling of network visualization displays.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm getting extremely good at information theory, computer
modeling, welding, construction, baking chocolate chip cookies,
organizing group projects, designing art projects (and even
sometimes implementing them!) and juggling many many balls without
dropping any (metaphorically, I'm actually a shitty juggler).

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Science Fiction books and movies, though not horror - isn't that
strange? So I like 'Aliens' as science fiction but get impatient
when we watch 20 minutes of suspense in Prometheus. I like '28 days
later' (science zombies!) but hate zombies in general.
Books: Anathem, Name of the Wind, Baroque Cycle
Shows - The Lower 48, here in town. Electronic music. Parties we
throw at our building with amazing DJs.
PS - I find myself uninterested in writing all the details out for
this one, so I answered very little. There's so much!

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Cognition, decision making and metaphor. How groups reach
decisions, and most specifically, the times the group goes one way

You'd like to do more than sitting in a bar having drinks.
If you have ever undertaken a quest.
If you believe that the world can be improved, by you, in your
lifetime (the efficacy problem).
If you have a poem memorized.
