My self-summary
I'm very mathematical, political, & logic-oriented. I used to write for a few popular special interest publications (such as Anarkismo or Black Bridge International),.

Was born near Philadelphia, but have since lived in Olympia, Ottawa, and Kansas. One was a commune situation. The other two were basically commune situations. I'm the one to blame for "cinematography" like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Rnv-RXJHxE

Nowadays I'm co-opting capitalism - because everything else only gets you so far - and have founded a technology company in the "privacy space".

I am only really active in the evening.
What I’m doing with my life
I've published two papers to the IEEE's Computer publication. My thesis on distributed, authenticated peer-to-peer voting systems for secure and verifiable elections is almost done.
I’m really good at
Reverse engineering. I really like breaking things down to learn how they work.
The first things people usually notice about me
would have to be the beard.

The six things I could never do without
1) People
2) A text editor (LATEX2ε!)
3) My glasses
4) A healthy distrust for the computers . . .
5) Justification for my actions
6) Privacy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How ridiculously jacked I'm going to get once I get my Omni(directional treadmill) and some VR tech.

Rationality, consciousness, ethics, legitimacy (in all things, particularly individuals' actions).
On a typical Friday night I am
probably breaking an information system for fun or profit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
would probably be that I was expelled from secondary school.
You should message me if
you think it's worthwhile. I'll be honest: I'm not looking for more "Internet buddies" - I have actual hundreds of those - but if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Thanks for reading.
