My self-summary
I think back to the halcyon dates of my youth, when indeterminate Hessians had something to do with the Revolutionary War, where conjugate priors were monks who had broken their vows, and the expression (X'X)^-1(X'Y) was Greek.

Those were simpler times

As a basic summary: I am geeky, adventurous, and reliable, with a deep and abiding love for spectacle in its own right.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a silly little company called Akamai Technologies where I am a happy, carefree member of the InfoSec team. I spend a lot of time helping figure out how to protect the Internet against various types of attacks.

I'm starting to "nest" in Natick center and currently conducting an elaborate experiment to determine whether a dog person can be a good cat owner.

I tend to fill my spare time with cooking, reading, and the occasional bridge match. I keep meaning to take a real vacation (I’m think of going to Myanmar before people like me ruin it for the rest of us)
I’m really good at
Academia, travel, food, and spectacle...

I'm a faculty brat. Grew up on a college campus. Classrooms have always felt like home and I always love learning new stuff.

I'm great traveling companion (Always have a positive attitude, no matter how bad the food poisoning). With this said and done, travel should not involve beaches, umbrella drinks, cruise ships, and the like.

I'm a major foodie. (Good cook, regular at Aka Bistro, Top Chef addict, currently practicing for an amateur Iron Chef battle with one of my co-workers)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm firmly convinced that "Better Off Dead" is the greatest achievement of modern cinema. With this said and done, here's the obligatory data dump.

Books: Last Call, The Last Coin, Use of Weapons, Silverlock
Movies: Better Off Dead, Repo Man, Sin City, Kill Bill, Brick
TV Shows: The Venture Bros, Archer, Veronica Mars, Better Off Ted, Community, Everybody Loves Hypnotoad
Music: Sleater-Kinney, Garbage, Aimee Mann, Neil Young, The Clash, The English Beat, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Dropkick Murphys, Concrete Blonde,
Food: mi cuit salmon, Oaxacan Mole, fermented pickles, venison
The six things I could never do without
My friends
My next vacation
Dogfish Head
Cast iron
Vacherin mont-d'or
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax, / Of cabbages and kings, / And why the sea is boiling hot, / And whether pigs have wings
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends or raiding
You should message me if
You have practical experienced in making yogurt from raw milk (cause I just spent a couple days wasting a lot of good product).

Alternatively, if you know where my pseudonym comes from...
