My self-summary
I'm a retired (3rd time), high tech systems and network architect, strategist, futurist, ethicist, lecturer, educator, activist, media reformer, permaculturist... and many other things.... I've been keeping up with these subjects, and many more over the past dozen years, while taking care of two disabled adults... Both have now moved on, so I'm onto my next adventure.

Currently, I'm doing village building (social), research in health & energy systems, permaculture and delivering workshops (ask about current subjects).

Honestly, I'm still doing so many things, you're not likely to believe me, until you get to know me. So, I propose you pick one of your favorite subjects, to get the ball rolling, and I'll try to seduce you with what I know of that subject.... Sound fair?
What I’m doing with my life
My purpose in this lifetime is based on this concept: 'Communication' is the universal solvent, upon which, all 'understanding' is achieved. 'Communication' is why the Berlin Wall came down... it's why the Soviet Union dissolved... it's why China opened up.... More wars will be stopped because of the Internet, than any other concept before it.... When we are 'freely' able to 'learn about' and 'understand' each other, because of enhanced communication (including translation services), we will evolve to a peaceful majority.

I've been to 28 countries, where I've not only worked on establishing networks, but studied ethnics wherever I visited. I'm insatiable, when it comes to knowledge. I've donated, or given away, several libraries -- I read a lot, and 'apply' most of it, to verify what works best.

I went from being a professional student, to getting in on the beginning of the micro-computer / networking revolution. Ended up becoming an Internet / New Media architect. And though I've focused on philosophy most of my life, I've found, being a technologist, a noble profession. My purpose in life is to enhance communication. That's why I'm also an activist. My passions are: media reform, education reform, political reform, true psychology (which I'm calling 'quantum psychology'; you'll have to ask me about this one); Futurism, Ethics (particularly with regard to 'Machine Learning, Social Justice, Governance, Economics, Environment... etc), and now Permaculture with all its branches...

Creativity, Imagination, Knowledge, Responsibility, Perception (Awareness), Admiration and a generous sense of 'Aesthetics', is what my life is all about. Every day, I try to further develop them all and share them with everyone I can.
I’m really good at
Understanding Nature, people, ethics and an evolution of consciousness.
The first things people usually notice about me
Most say they like my eyes. But once we start talking, it's my warm understanding that usually takes over. People always enjoy telling me their troubles, secrets and 'joys'.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: see: http://amzn.com/w/UX7U0Z7FQ1QM
I'm a voracious reader. Have been since I was 6.
Movies: a very long eclectic list (still compiling)
Music: an even longer eclectic list (always growing)
Food: Vegan. But I'll date animal eaters, they just don't taste as good... ;-P
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I gave up thinking, years ago. You either know something, or you learn enough about it, to satisfy your interests. Everything else, is a waste of time. Thinking, is like the hamster on a circular treadmill... spinning your wheels with the data you have, not necessarily the data you need. A better question for me, would be, "What subjects am I most interested in currently?" "Oh, look!!!... a book!!!"
On a typical Friday night I am
There's no such thing as a typical Friday night where I'm concerned. I have a little trouble comprehending, doing the same things, over and over again, unless they are 'really, really good things'. Creativity, is 'a' spice of life. I say, 'use your imagination, it's free, isn't it?' Now, if I were with someone special, I could see identifying certain nights of the month, or week, as movie night, or music and dance night, moon & star night, massage night, or anything that would generate a longing anticipation... I'm sure a grooming night would be fun... ;-P
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm willing to share everything, with the right woman. I just don't want to overwhelm any potential right women... You see, even though I may appear to not need anything in my life, I long for a partner to make 'music' and/or 'magic' with, during the rapid evolution, we're currently embarked on.
You should message me if
If I've tickled your curiosity, even a little... I'm much better, live.
The two of us
