I’m a proud graduate of the University of Waterloo School of Computer Science, and I now spend my life atoning for it.
I’m also in love with philosophy, and that’s what I’d do if it didn’t involve poverty and academics.
I love listening to music, baking, amateur literary criticism, and futile situationist manifestos. Post-punk is the way to my heart, even if you define it as a golden apple on a misty summer's day.
I am mildly aghast at how the art/craft of software programming is not represented on Swap-bot. Once I get my bearings, I will attempt to rectify: If I had more coding time and I thought anyone would join, I'd host "create-a-ray-tracer" swaps.
