Mammalian biped. Abnormally tall. Myopic. Hirsute. Deliriously fond of chess (currently mid-1900s FIDE after a long hiatus), computer science, chemistry, and literature. Persistently raging against own stupidity.
Pozzo: The tears of the world are a constant quantity. For each one who begins to weep, somewhere else another stops. The same is true of the laugh. (He laughs.) Let us not then speak ill of our generation, it is not any unhappier than its predecessors. (Pause.) Let us not speak well of it either. (Pause.) Let us not speak of it at all.
I'm a mostly self-taught programmer, occasional web and mobile developer, and full-time college student chiefly interested at present in chemoinformatics and computational chemistry. I desperately cling to the meager, pathetic shreds of hacker street-cred of my first language being C, learnt at the age of 12, from K&R, compiled on an antique Kaypro PC already over a decade past its prime. Recently, I've been working mostly in Python. One day, I hope to master Haskell and then use it to sling some truly epic chemoinformatic algos. One day.
Stephen Dedalus: History is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake.
I'm an agnostic atheist, rationalist, empiricist, and dour skeptic of all things not thoroughly tested. Politically, I tend to hew toward a somewhat uneasy and idiosyncratic synthesis of democratic socialism and civil libertarianism. Philosophically, I'm inclined to believe that preference utilitarianism offers the most intuitive and logically consistent approach to analyzing moral and ethical quandaries, but sometimes it's hard to escape the looming specter of relativism.
Well, I think that about covers all the bases. Congratulations on reading this far. Now, reflect on the uselessness of the information you've just acquired.
