My self-summary
Hi, I'm Max! I'm the co-founder and the former CTO of OkCupid. I wrote OKWS, the Web Server that powers the site.

Nowadays, the awesome OkEngineers are in charge of keeping this site thriving, and I'm working on some new dating products that will be coming online soon.

Follow me on Twitter.
What I’m doing with my life
Building secure distributed systems. Meaning OkCupid's infrastructure.

Blah blah
I’m really good at
Fixing things that have broken; waking up early; taking short naps while driving, waking up in time to make that turn
The first things people usually notice about me
My breasts.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(a) The Mezzanine, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, and Middlesex since it's mentioned above. Other assorted jams.

(b) Vertigo, Rushmore, The Man With the Movie Camera, a lot more, but those come to mind for some reason. Recently, I've enjoyed Melinda and Melinda, though can understand why a lot of people wouldn't; so while I'm at it, I like most Woody Allen, including of course Manhattan. Also, The Incredibles was a lot of fun, as was Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, which was strangely similar plot-wise.

(c) The Magnetic Fields, Pavement, The Flaming Lips, Sonny Rollins, Charlie Parker, Cannonball Adderley, Bob Dylan, Jim O'Rourke, though I still think that My Bloody Valentine's Loveless is one of the top albums, ever.

(d) Indian Food, the best food in the world.


Blah blahblah.
Six things I could never do without
I could never do without my lovely wife Sarah!

I am somewhat addicted to the internet, and OkCupid. Aside from those and the obvious things, it's nice to have a bicycle, but in general, I am trying to avoid the accumulation of fleeting material possessions.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next tweet. Follow me @maxtaco
On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Privacy can be overrated.
