I am a British native with Scottish/South African heritage; my background is in particle physics and medical physics and I have lived and worked for an extended period in France and Switzerland.

My interests include most anything scientific (particularly in the physical sciences and computer science), the use and history of systems of measurement (particularly SI), cryptography (particularly cryptocurrency), philosophy (particularly philosophy of mind, politics, and ethics), literature (particularly literary Romanticism and speculative fiction, somewhat Modernism), counterculture (particularly psychedelia), language (particularly ancient languages and conlangs), music (particularly electronic, classical, and jazz), art of almost any type (I find discussions about the relative merits of contemporary and classical art tedious and pointless), the nature of human sexuality, the cultural history of psychoactive substances, free culture (particularly FOSS), decentralised systems for information exchange and decision making, plant-based diets and lifestyles, and video games (of pretty much any type).
