I'm useful for programming computers, analyzing complex systems and original thought. That pretty girl in the photo is my wife Monika. She blushes at being mentioned but would feel disappointed if I didn't.

Curious people like talking to me. My interests have followed an arc through games, math, economics, ethics, personality to my present fascination with tribalism. I seek to understand how people come to their beliefs.
