Chi sono

I spend my time chasing the suggestions of my friends, seeing live music, and programming various projects.

I love walking. If you do too, I will walk around wherever we happen to be with you.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is an optimization problem and I'm always stuck in a local maximum.

I am a scientifically minded naturalist. I prefer consequentialist views of ethics to deontological views, though I'm not a Utilitarian.

I want to live indefinitely, and to exceed natural human capacity in most things. Naturally, there's a label for folk of this sort: transhumanist. I just hope we survive the singularity.

Perché sono iscritto su Couchsurfing

I'd like strangers to crash with me. I'd like strangers to show me what they love about the places they live.

I've crashed with a few and hosted a few. The most salient traits shared by these experiences are live music/art performances and bars.

Interessi

I spend good amounts of time watching the videos for open classes, tech conferences, and TED talks. I read a bunch of serial fantasy fiction and random comics on the internet. I pet my cats. I go to concerts and listen to music a lot when I'm home. I compose software.

Intellectual interests include economics, statistics, machine learning/AI, epistemology, ethics, logic, linguistics, and psychology. Really, anything there is to know. I just don't list physics, chemistry, biology, etc because I haven't pursued them much, though I wish I would.

Musica, film e libri

Here's a place where I link to freely available songs I think are worth a listen.

http://song-a-day.blogspot.com/

I like indie rock, hip hop, electronic/ambient/house, jazz, metal, classical, modern chamber music, lo-fi, experimental, pop, etc.

I read a decent deal of non-fiction, mostly technical stuff or popular social science. My fiction tastes tend to lean toward social science fiction, eg Ursula Le Guin or Charles Stross. My favorite is still Sandman.
