My self-summary
I grew up in Hawaii and studied economics at Princeton. Now I'm building software systems on Manhattan. I'm 1/16th Hawaiian, which is just enough to tan
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a computer programmer / manager at a digital media agency. I love my job (weird, right?), but I really want to move someplace random, start my own business, and experience all that entrepreneurial stress. Some options I've considered: jeepney fleet captain; high-end computer keyboard manufacturer; importer/exporter with some rapidly growing economy; tenured professor. I'm always keeping my eyes open and currently have little tying me down to one place
I’m really good at
* Skiing
* Squash (the sport)
* Body surfing
* Surviving a long trip with a small backpack and two sets of clothes
* Ranting about why the use of proprietary operating systems in elementary schools is destroying American youth
The first things people usually notice about me
It's probably a tie between my cheesy smile and my knack for puns
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Cryptonomicon, Star Maker, Flatland, Foundation Series, Brave New World, Silo Series, Zones of Thought, Systemantics. Mostly science fiction

TV: South Park, Workaholics

Music: anything but death metal

Food: No mushrooms. If you like 'em, you can have mine
Six things I could never do without
Squash (the sport)
Mechanical keyboard
I spend a lot of time thinking about
* whether ridding the world of mosquitoes would have a net positive impact
* when I'm going to drop everything, move someplace random, and start something of my own
On a typical Friday night I am
Human. Unless it's a full moon...
You should message me if
any of the following are true:

* You're super chill
* You love programming and want to discuss the merits of Vim and Emacs while working together to find a new prime sieve and then, when we've lost track of our delicately assembled logic, my bash script shuts down our computers and you pull me to the floor, syncing processors while trying every technique in the manual as our systems go down for maintenance, reviving the next morning for pancakes and the promise of a long journey someplace far from any laptop
* You like dogs
The two of us
