I'm a 24-year old student with a masochistic desire to expose my ideas to public scrutiny. I don't plan to use this journal to discuss my personal life at all, nor to complain about work or school any more than is absolutely necessary to make a larger point about something of general interest. Speaking of general interest: I'm pretty deeply entrenched in the geek subculture and my writing might sometimes by inaccessible to those who aren't. I will make no effort to change this, because on some level I'm still bitter about high school. If you don't know who Joe Coyne is, that makes me feel better about my performance in P.E. class. That said, geekery isn't all that I write, and I hope that the occasional tangent about Space Cabby won't scare off the uninitiated.
