My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Been quiet a few months, let's try this again, shall we? I'm lucky enough to have a good group of friends and colleagues, but that probably leaves me a bit less likely to get out there and meet new people.

I'm still discovering new things about the Seattle area, though I've been here a year and a half now, so that's good. I didn't think much of it when I first visited years ago, but it's made a fine adopted home.

I enjoy reading, trying out new activities and seeing new places, and talking about deep topics. I used to think I was a gamer and nerd, but then I started working at a video games company.

I'm probably more academic and pedantic than most, and am independent and tend to want to make my own path. I'm really good at some things, and terrible at others, but that's only fair, right?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Really trying to 'clean up'; to free up space in my apartment and my mind, and devote time to the people and interests I care about.

A good portion of that is the work I do; I work as a product manager at a mobile games studio. It's kind of awesome, but still a lot of work because the industry is fast paced. Doing anything as a profession probably changes your attitudes towards it as a hobby.

Outside of work, I also try to maintain some amount of activity, usually climbing at the Stone Gardens gym in Bellevue on the weekends, going for a bike ride, or trying to get out for some light travel.

I've definitely still got some larger projects I'd want to work on or hobbies to rekindle, such as devoting more time to classical guitar, skiing, doing a backpacking trip to southeast asia, spending time working on my Chinese, or rediscovering my love of coding, but I'm liking the super-hot summer days just fine right now, and lazing around a bit more.

***You can see I don't update this that often. It's more that I'm liking the cool grey rainy autumn days now***
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being moderately good at most things. Absorbing information and diving into problems. Optimizing.

I'm pretty good at comparison shopping for flights, or making itineraries for example. Also, not being very good at filtering what I say to friends.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm usually not the center of attention in a crowd, more probably looking about with a reflective or wistful expression or settling into a more low key conversation.

I'm usually pretty permissive and non-confrontational, but I also can be pretty untactful in pointing out flaws and inconsistencies. It's not mean-spirited, but it's sort of the way I'm wired. Also, pretty tall for an asian guy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
If on a winter's night a traveler. The Diamond Age. The Design of Everyday Things, The Wealth of Nations, A Brief History of Time, The Republic, The Fountainhead*, Love in the Time of Cholera, The Road, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, lots of Isaac Asimov and Philip K. Dick.

Typical action/sci-fi/drama/comedy blockbusters mostly. I have a soft spot for Jim Carey films though.

TV: Sherlock, Suits, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Top Gear, Star Trek: TNG, Documentaries, The Simpsons (Seasons 3-9), The IT Crowd. I was really impressed with the latest series of Cosmos on Fox.
Theatre: Les Miserables, Carousel, The 39 Steps, The Book of Mormon

Pop, Classical (esp. Beethoven's 6th and Mahler's 5th), 90's/00's Alt. Rock.
I do like somewhat folksy/alt. female singers: Florence + the Machine, Metric, Birdy, Feist, Ellie Goulding, A Fine Frenzy, La Roux. I'm also a bit ashamed to say I'm really digging the album by Lorde.

Noodles. Schwartz's smoked meat in Montreal. The chocolate pecan caramel pie at A La Mode here in Seattle. Also trying new stuff; pretty much a well made anything has it's appeal.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There's actually very little I couldn't/haven't lived without for extended periods, though there are certain things I really like having. These include:

-Grapefruit Juice
-A well-stocked fridge
-Peaty scotch
-Shirts with collars
-Some sort of computer
-Books or other reading material
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Pretty much everything, but I still have a certain affinity for science and technology, and economic policy. Philosophy in general is interesting, and decision making, logic, and game theory in particular are interesting to me.

I also spend a lot of time thinking about fairly pointless stuff online.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying to survive the sweltering Seatle summer heat in my apartment without air conditioning. Otherwise, meeting up with friends for dinner, drinks, or a board game gathering.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I decided to join this site only after reading the blog posts about data mining. I'm such a nerd, but I love thoughtfulness in all things.

Two things tend to dominate my personality and life; a love of order and cleanliness, as well as laziness and indifference to planning things out. That results in some contradictions and interesting juxtapositions.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've made it this far and the above sounds appealing, and you'd be interested in meeting in person to talk more and see if there is a connection. I'm rather too busy to be coy, am not put off by forwardness, so promise to be responsive, honest, and polite.

And after a round of edits, I think the above still holds. Chemistry and shared values are probably the most important things to me right now; everything else can be something to discover and feel out.
