If you're looking at this profile, you're most likely trying to see whether I'm interesting enough to be circled. Take a look at my posts, they're a more accurate overview of my interests than anything I could write here. For example, I never knew I would get interested in what's now known as #nymwars (and its probable followup, #facewars).
In addition to the kind of things that I post about on G+, I dabble in retrocomputing. I'm particularly interested in programming techniques in low-resource environments, from designing creative bit patterns to self-modifying code. My first experience was with Z80 (actually, U880) and CP/M. I'm quite fond of the m68k processor family.
I have done freelance work in various computing and statistics fields, from domain-specific languages to text clustering. I've written a few web servers, including one to service a small country worth of people and one to run well inside an iPAQ. Now I'm a novice priest studying the ways of the deity who knows almost everything and answers most prayers in under a second.
Being an atheist of Chaotic Neutral alignment, I generally prefer deities who don't take themselves too seriously, from the Great Coyote to the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
My political views, should you care about this short of thing, fall somewhere in the European spectrum. I subscribe to the notion that Good Governance is a worthy human right. I support individual freedoms but I'm cautious about generalising them to organisations whose power is closer to countries than individuals. I disagree, sometimes loudly, with anti-tax fanatics. I like to think I understand the major political and economic theories I don't accept.
