My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

I spend most of my time working on computers, developing both hardware and software, thanks to my background in both (plus Physics). In 1993 I have moved to US after studying in Russia and Belarus (USSR for most of that time), lived in Denver, moved to San Francisco Bay Area, then back to Denver, then to Bay Area again (and now from East to South Bay).

I am a honest, decent person, I love science and technology, and I can talk about plenty of things (it helps to have broad education and genuine interest in learning) as long as you won't insist on describing my taste in music (I don't think, I have any particular taste).

I am thinking, creative, and educated
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

It's hard to describe what I do now -- no, I am not doing some kind of job that requires a flowchart to describe, and severe brain damage to accept as something useful, I never worked for a dotcom, and I am not unemployed. But it's still weird to write that I am a programmer, now it requires a separate explanation that I am what was a "programmer" before dotcom idiocy caused every HTML/Javascript/Flash/VB/... monkey to become a "programmer" -- I am a programmer that had taken CS courses, studied assembly and C, that can write things working on a bare hardware, Unix and everything in between, that learns languages as needed and knows concepts because he had studied them, as opposed to the other way around, and can ignore what is popular "on the market" in favor of what he thinks, will do the job.

Currently I do embedded systems development -- now it's for networking equipment, at my previous job it was for real-time audio processing. If you don't know what embedded systems development is, the best explanation would be that I make magic smoke that makes computers and other electronic devices work -- except, of course, it's not magic and requires plenty of work with anything from soldering irons and oscilloscopes to what looks more like plain traditional software development.

I live in San Jose, surrounded by a bunch of Linux boxes -- had to move for my current job from Emeryville, where I have spent five years.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Glasses, computers, Unixlike operating systems, Internet connectivity, urban environment, food/air/water.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Mostly things related to my work (ranging from physics of heat transfer to software design) but also politics and various problems that I see around.
