My #introduction on another site: I'm a microeconomist who spends his days searching for better models, but I mostly use this site for one-liners.
Am a heavy music consumer, and may post track links w/background. I do a lot with intellectual property, migration, and computational statstics, which I think are important topics with a lot of room for curiosity and creative exploration. I make soap, bike everywhere, often sleep in tents, and am generally an introverted hippie.
And the Emojipedía 🧆 was so unpalatable it made international headlines: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/voraciously/wp/2019/02/07/why-does-the-new-falafel-emoji-look-like-potatoes/
Hands up if you want a BIBLIOBURRO
I've been interviewing people about cyberpunk, and their definitions all focus on
* people comfortable with body modification.
* a fight against the corporate takeover of everything.
* technological proficiency (one author specifically mentions being good with C).
What I'm saying is, Mastodon is already the cyberpunk future.
Résumé updating and checked out my public domain paper on sci-hub.se, and it's Xmas themed today! https://sci-hub.se/10.1007/s13132-020-00629-1
Feeling cyberpunk? I've been getting into Android: Netrunner, a stellar 2P card game. By my primary measure of a game--do people feel feelings while playing it?--it is an excellent game.
