About meI'm just this guy, you know?

You want more than that?

Okay, I'm a 20-something (too many somethings) resident of Salt Lake City, Utah, and a researcher and student in the University of Utah's School of Computing.

About my libraryI've been a lifelong reader of SciFi and fantasy - a lot of stuff I read when I was younger isn't part of my "library", since I checked it out from the Holladay Library.

Lately, I read a lot more nonfiction. Being a computer scientist, much of this is of course, computer-related. In particular, I'm interested in the security and tech policy, especially as it relates to the Internet.

I also have an interest in the literature and philosophy of Asia, particularly writings on Zen and the classics of Chinese and Japanese literature.
