Introduction My primary job is working as a software engineer. I specialize in manufacturing and test software. I've done stints in the disk drive industry, medical device industry, and in product firmware development. I am a middle-aged white dude, if such generalities matter to you. I am basically a lefty with centrist tendencies (or am I a centrist with lefty tendencies?). I am a radical agnostic, and I vote.

Favorite Movies Forbidden Planet, Lilo and Stitch, Doctor Strangelove, Love Actually, Local Hero, Serenity, Pleasantville, and currently The Avengers, which was seriously fun. Another hit for Joss Whedon.
