I'm not much for blogging as of now... I read a few (http://withleather.com/, http://filmdrunk.com/, http://wwtdd.com/, http://consumerist.com/), but that's about it. So, why am I doing this? Well, mostly as a way of talking to myself. I like to organize my thinking by writing, so why not let other people read my thoughts if they like?
This blog will therefore be about whatever I'm thinking about. I tend to view the world through science and reason, and that is my fundamental approach to doing pretty much everything, for better or worse. If you want to disagree with me and convince me of something, you'd best approach me with reason.
Science-y topics to expect include artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science, economics, and mathematics. Outside those, I'll probably be talking about my relationships, job, life, books, movies, sports, my fantasy football team, and anything else I feel like. It is my blog after all. If you don't like it, piss off.
I'm 25, living in Seattle and working for Microsoft as a Program Manager. I went to MIT for undergrad in Computer Science and grad school at the Media Lab. I was born in Southern California and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. I'm a libertarian and an atheist. Don't hate me for any of this; I'm also a person trying to live and be happy and help those around me as best I can, especially my girlfriend and our dog, William. And, my 10th grade English teacher Mrs. Bice said I was a natural writer. We'll see.
