Yes, please, I'd love another cup of coffee. My spectrum is broad. I have ALL the Gs
I don't like trying to list interests, because I am mostly interested in "details that are awesome" and "the big picture". I like to collect specialists and put them together like puzzles. I like to curate interesting stuff. I love talent and genius in most of its forms. I have been informed sternly by an eight-year-old that I laugh too much. I like to leave random comments and sometimes jump in your conversations. I am a person, not a brand.
I have a reasonable degree of experience and/or education in traditional arts, comparative mythology, logic, complex adaptive systems, psychology, neuroscience, and a lot of the places where those things collide. I've worked primarily in the tech world, with emphasis on support, sysadmin, and PM roles in commerce, communications, and security, everything from casual c2c to federal robustness standards and compliance. I feel very rewarded when I am able to help identify, spec, and solve problems
I enjoy trying to predict the future (relatively short term, 1-7 years out) of things. I'm surprisingly good at it, except I have a horrible tendency to be way off on timing. I'm working on troubleshooting that problem, but you should probably pay less attention to claims I make about when and more attention to the paths and key event specs I imagine, since those seem to be where I'm far more accurate. Also keep in mind it's simply a game I play, take it as advice only at your own risk.

Since the social norms of G+ are still being fought out, I will mention the following: I try to leave a comment or private post for everyone I don't already know that I add these days, letting you know why I added you. I'd be pleased if you did the same when adding me. I may be slow to circle you back, because I try to pay some attention to everyone I have circled, and must limit my adding to enable this. I am more likely to notice you if you participate in discussions with me, and the kinds of conversations that happen on your stream are also important, since I am interactive. I post pretty much everything here Public, so you're not missing anything.
I am very honest and blunt. I was told I put the "b" in "subtle" long before it was a meme. I love asking questions and figuring things out. I am very curious. I want to understand you. If I ask you a lot of questions, please do not attribute to malice what is probably more properly attributed to a burning desire to "get it". If you like questions and figuring things out, you should check out the #questionable tag, which I created in an attempt to channel whatever my mind has wandered to lately into a discussion. Think of it like a game, using I-language and nonviolent communication techniques, of exploring things, and also yourself. You can use the tag too, if you want, and I'd love it if you tagged me in if you did.
My comments are not a free-for-all. Don't act like someone I have to block.
[I use Plus primarily from the mobile browser of my phone, so my URLs are often ugly, I can't edit my own posts, and I can't tag anyone. Sorry about all that, leave Google feedback if it bothers you. If you dislike the "jumping around", multiple columns, GIF auto-play, and Giant-Image- #ReadMore of the desktop interface, you might want to try out the mobile form on the desk browser.
