Hello Diaspora! I am #newhere
First: English is not my native language and writing or speaking in it is quite hard for me yet (I've got far more experience in reading or listening rather than writing or speaking). I choose English cause of English-speaking community is (most probably) larger and includes majority of somewhat educated Russian-speaking community anyway, while diaspora is not yet very popular social network yet, and what probably more important some English practice makes interaction with social network less useless time wasting. I have a hope to be corrected if I do something too horrible to the language.
Second: It's hard for me to write introduction cause apparently it's hard to choose what things I'm interested in. I wonder how other choose just few tags. It doesn't feel reasonable to try to list everything I have ever been interested in, yet I'm not sure if it better choose only few things I consider important, or is it more sensible to focus on things I already have seen being mentioned by someone? It seems I came to piling up most of things I can remember to be involved lately and some I was not.
* I guess i can start from mentioning my profession which is about #programming
, more precisely I use С# for some dubious objectives but interested mostly in anything related to algorithms and machine learning.
* I'm also interested in #unicycle
, and that's how I usually go to work.
* I'm interested in #rationality
* Since childhood I often wonder why so many people put up with short lifespan and I'm interested in increasing life #longevity
* I'm a bit tired from anything related to #politics
, yet I tend to think there should be a way how relatively sane people can and should (at least partially) fix current state of the system.
* I'm mostly #agnostic
yet I can sympathize to some religions like #discordianism
some sorts of #pagan
* Sometimes I dabble in #magic
and partially related stuff like #out-of-body
expirience and simple #lucid-dreaming
and some other even more questionable stuff.
* I like to use unusual writing systems starting from #tengwar
* I can add to list some purely entertaining things like #anime
, and #MLP
. I also read some #books
while my favorite authors use Russian language and their works are practically not translated, and two last English language things which impressed me lately are fanfiction (Fallout: Equestria and #HPMOR)
I use the same nickname (Lurr = Лурр) for a quite a long time.
