The main page didn't give me much room to talk about my interests or anything so I'll do it here. I'll do the typical boring "books, movies, songs" stuff last. First off: I love flight. I love planes, spaceships, and especially dirigibles which I am really hoping will make a comeback. I am also fascinated by robots and artificial intelligence. I consider myself something of a futurist or transhumanist but don't go nearly as extreme as a lot of them do. I'm pretty good with computers. I wouldn't say it was an interest but I end up helping people get rid of viruses a lot and may end up doing something IT related as a living of my airship transport company doesn't pan out.

Politically I tend to lean far left but it's not a huge part of my life. I'd be much happier for society collapsed and everyone reverted into small agrarian communities. I guess I'm a bit of a survivalist and eco-freak but I also am a technophile so I'd require my commune/anarchist collective to have solar panels and if possible, hi speed internet.

I think I'm mostly a decent, if reclusive, human being that cares about the world at large, but I do have rhe occasional urge for world domination or genocide or something. But that's normal, right?... right?

Love your movie preferences! Hayao Miyazaki is my hero!

You describe yourself as a futurist. Ever heard of Buckminster Fuller? He was the interesting, ingenious person responsible for the implementation of geodesic domes.

Anyway, thanks for sharing more about yourself than what fits in those little intro boxes! ;-)
