My self-summary
I've lived in the Bay area for a few years. It took me a while to settle in, but now I wonder why it took me so long to get here. I'm finding it easy to get out, but hard to start dating, so I'm here on OkCupid....

I'm a classic math/science/computer guy, and I don't care who knows it. If you ask me about my technical interests I *will* tell you, so be careful... music, photography, and writing are some of my nontechnical interests.

I read a lot, mostly divided between SF and technical nonfiction. Over the years I've accumulated a pretty hefty library, which I'm ambivalent about: on the one hand, it's awesome to have it available, but on the other hand, it's a lot of Stuff that is awkward to move and takes up space.

I'm sharp, sarcastic, and sometimes even witty. I like talking philosophy, politics, culture, life, and... well, I basically like talking.

The first things people usually notice about me
These days, I shave my head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: fantasy and science fiction, mostly. I read Brust, Bujold, Banks, and Butcher, to name a few that start with "B".

Comics: indie, mostly. Slice-of-life things of various bents, as well as the occasional manga, still. Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, Warren Ellis, Jhonen Vasquez, Bryan Lee O'Malley, Carla Speed McNeil, Phil Foglio. Way too many webcomics...

Movies: lots of action adventure movies, most anything by Pixar. I've got to see the big special effects movies even if i know they're going to suck.

TV: I don't actually watch much broadcast/cable TV, but I catch up on the occasional show via DVD or the `net: I liked Firefly, Battlestar Galactica (TNS), and Dead Like Me. I can watch about 10 to 15 minutes, tops, of any given sitcom.

Music: anything that hasn't been played sixty million times recently. Though lately, I've been playing a lot of Bach.

Food: I like food. Mmm, food.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
My projects. My friends. My family. Fiction. Philosophy. Music. Art. The future. The past. Science. Magic. Politics. Technology. Bad jokes. Good movies. Articulate rants. Inarticulate ideas.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out at the pub.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm addicted to ellipses and Gratuitous Capitalization...
