I have a massive list of music favourites, from the 1960s to the present. Current likes include Panda Bear, Fleet Foxes, Fuck Buttons, First Aid Kit, The Tallest Man on Earth, Villagers, Metronomy. Without music not much else can happen for me.
I support filesharing and the relaxing of copyright for personal use by individuals. I like free and open source software and use linux.
I am an atheist and I am opposed to religion. I keep up with atheism news via Atheist Alliance Inernational and The Richard Dawkins web site.
I love science fiction and fantasy, but I also like children's/young adult literature and some science writing. I tend to have reading binges, but in 2010 I made a commitment to make the reading binge permanent. My reading log is here
I live in Sydney, I work as a journalist, my partner and I have 2 children. I prefer to keep personal stuff in personal circles.
