A Simple Way To Go Faster Than Light That Does Not Work

That's awful high, Jason. That's awful high.

I am Just a random hacker. Buy my Perl book. Buy my Mac book.

I make a living as an independent software consultant. On the side, I am the project manager of Volity, an open Internet multiplayer gaming platform.

LJ-Friends Policy: I recognize the disconnect between LJ-friends and real-life friends. While there is significant overlap, a member of one group is not guaranteed to be in the other. I recommend a similar viewpoint for all LJ users, really.

As a courtesy, I friend anyone who friends me, but I read my friends page through a private filter that displays only those writers whom I find actually interesting, and make secure posts to another private filter that more or less fits the definition "people I know in non-LJ contexts, who are not insane".

I may decline to reciprocate LJ-friend-ness to anyone who looks like a troll, spammer, or astroturfer, or to real people whose writing I find actively saddening for whatever reason (as opposed to merely uninteresting).

Occasionally, I will friend people I don't actually know, if I happen to stumble across their LJs (usually through "friendsfriends" or comments left on mutual friends' posts) and find their writing interesting. If this has happened to you: hello! I find your writing interesting, apparently. You can friend me back, or not, at your leisure. It's all good.
