There appears to be a high chance that I qualify for Avoidant Personality Disorder, which can tell you a lot about me right there.
Most of what I am appears to focus around communication: knowledge representation, transmission, and retrieval.
- Education - transmission
- Lingustics - transmission
- Graphic Design, HCI, Usability, Information Architecture - transmission
- Organization, categories, ontologies, history, culture, convention, etc
- Complexity reduction
- Logic, including Go and Chess, puzzles, strategy, etc.
- Computers - the whole stack, especially the lower digital layers
- Social skills, persuasion, communication, design, etc - social power
- Martial arts - found and studying Wing Chun
- Music - I only perform vocal
What does Iiridayn do in his spare time?
Mostly plays video games - Feed the Beast and EVE Online at the moment. Also trying to catch up on my reading pile. Programs, esp SkyLords. Watches some anime sometimes, currently getting caught up via Hulu on One Piece and Naruto. Trys to find a way to curate online art collections.
Since I am between jobs and (finally!) just starting to get over severe burnout (I'm programming casually again!), I suppose most of my time qualifies as hobbies lately.
Projects which I would like to undertake someday
Notes about projects are found here
- This site - an index of my knowledge, both internal and external.
- Image curation and storage site - so that for me at least they stop going offline.
- Information deluge management site - email, text, social, phone, etc.
- Decentralized P2P MMO architecture - so even if I stop hosting it, the game can survive.
- Customized hardware and software for my use
- Quadsuit - as realistic as possible dragon costume with as much articulation as I can cram into it.
