geek and ye shall find
20 something web developer, with (I've been told) a questionable taste in music. I enjoy being in sunny climates, reading and spending time with friends (none of which I do often enough). I watch very little tv. Scrubs, Stargate, Top Gear & BBC News pretty much covers what I see on the old idiot-box.
I studied music in tech, played drums in loads of bands for a few years and then decided I'd make a better programmer than musician. I have a few friends who still play in bands around the place and I love going to see them play.
Douglas Adams, George Carlin, William McDonough, Nikola Tesla & Jonny 5.
Jeff Han's multi-touch design interface, Wireless power being developed at MIT (based on Nikola Tesla's research from the late 1800s), "Cradle to Cradle" design by William McDonough and colleagues & Ray Kurzweil's ideas on human augmentation with technology.
Chilling with friends, going to rock gigs, swimming although our local leisure center has closed for refurbishment :(, running etc.
Down and Out in Paris and London & Nineteen Eighty Four by George Orwell. The HitchHikers Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams. Mort and Soul Music by Terry Pratchett. Advanced PHP Programming by George Schlossnagle & Where Wizards Stay Up Late: The Origins of the Internet (I know I'm a geek).
Star Wars, Casshern, Ichi the Killer, 28 Days Later, Cars, Akira, Clerks, Galaxy Quest, Idiocracy, Jackie Brown, Shawn of the Dead, Amelie, Don't be a Menace., The Day the Earth Stood Still, Thursday, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Bullitt, The Ipcress File, Lost in Translation.

Things I can't abide:
Reality TV shows, bagpipes, stock sound effects on TV & in movies, drunken teenagers, natural resource wastage.
I'd like to meet a nice girl who can have a laugh as easily as a deep and meaningful conversation about society, the state of the planet and Star Wars for instance. Intelligence and sincerity are very important to me, as is independent thinking. I am impressed by unconventional skills, challenging ideas & enthusiasm for one's own beliefs.
