My self-summary
I find myself doing things by myself most the time. I have a nice backyard. Bamboo grows there, and it’s now over 5 feet tall. I have a whiny cat that has only food on its little mind. When I feed it, my daughter restrains the cat in another room while I prepare the irresistible meal. When I place the food dish on the floor, my daughter lets the cat go, and the cat runs at full speed across the house to get at the food, apparently because she is that hungry. I play piano these days: lots of Jazz, plus some other kinds of music. I like to go dancing sometimes, usually in tight, 70s-style pants, because it’s more fun that way. The best music to dance to is funky music, and electronica. I listen to podcasts while riding my bike to work. One of my favorite is Tangentially Speaking, by Christopher Ryan. He wrote Sex at Dawn, which is a pretty rad book, if you haven’t read it already. I like to hike. I like to go out of town, drink beer with folks, and eat fancy food.
What I’m doing with my life
Raising a daughter, playing music, listening to music, loving my job as a programmer, working on my house and my garden. Going on hikes. Looking for a surfing partner.

Astrology, astrobiology, neolithic life, origin of life, space travel, artificial intelligence, Jazz improvisation, human sexuality, relationships, polyamory, disruptive technologies, overpopulation, global warming, poverty, the power of love and cooperation.
