Google+ sent me an email to say that I had missed this. They were right, I nearly did. ;-)

Story
Tagline
Interested in pretty much everything
Introduction
I'm fascinated with the world, and the fact that I'm here, able to be fascinated with it. Who am I, where did I come from and where am I going?. Love the work of Ken Wilber, Ray Kurzweil and Peter Diamandis among many, many others.
 
I also like beer, curry, poker and throwing shapes on the dance floor.
