My self-summary
I'm not one to rush things and appreciate a polite back and forth that gradually gets deeper... I've made a few friends on this site and think being fairly simple and straightforward has served me well.
What I’m doing with my life
Technologically oriented things... Running an online business... Volunteering with the National Weather Service and Project Gutenberg. Just restarted making electronic music... Overall, leading a relaxed and reasonably full life.
I’m really good at
I used to be a nationally ranked swimmer and going back a bit, my SAT's were at the top of my class (subsequent testing has reenforced that).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Hmm... Hard Sci-Fi has been a favorite ever since I read through Frank Herbert's work. More recently Alister Reynolds and Ian M. Banks have been enjoyed...

Not a big movie watcher, though I like to know what's playing...

Made use of Netflix to watch the "Cosmos" re-work. Talk Soup, MST3K and The Daily Show are some older favorites. Family Guy used to be the best, like The Simpsons, but both have lost their comedic edge...

I like several forms of Electronica; Chill, Ambient Bass and Intelligent Dance Music are among them...

Hmm... Pretty typical fare, Wendy's, Little Caesar's deep dish (those only occasionally). Sushi (California Roll) and General Tso's Chicken are Asian favorites...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Until recently, I had a pretty deep months-long foray into the nature and ramifications of the Liberal/Conservative spectrum... As well, some futurism, business issues like market behavior, climate and social issues... Many things.
You should message me if
You're interested in texting leading up to phone calls, then some face to face. You enjoy the simple sharing that brings people together and still use enough intellectual bredth to give these things a philosophical or information rich flavor...
