I'm Randolf Richardson. My interests include Chinese culture (specifically Traditional Chinese Medicine, Martial Arts, Table Tennis, and Badminton), Computer programming (specifically Psychology applied to MMORPG creation, work with large Databases, Assembly language programming, Perl software engineering, and the Java programming language), and most of all the beautiful forests and rivers here in British Columbia.
Another interest is reading, in general. I've read a variety of topics, mostly in books, but also in other formats available on the internet (including a good portion provided by the Canadian Government). The topics range from fantasy works such as Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings to various business management, psychology and philosophy (including important titles like The Sibling Society, Unconsious Civilization, and The God Delusion), computer programming, plus a smattering of various scientific subjects.
In Canada, especially here in British Columbia, a diverse mix of cultures exists, which I believe is one of the greatest things about my country. Cultural diversity is advantageous to society because everyone gets many opportunities to learn about the world through a variety of perspectives, and from the convenience of home.
Advocacy for freedom and Canadian Charter Rights is important to me, and you can read more about my recent efforts on my personal web site: http://www.randolfrichardson.com/richmond-signage/
I also take an active role in protecting my local community from safety hazards (e.g., malfunctioning railroad crossings, erratic and drunk drivers, spammers, etc.), and I have actively assisted people in need of various degrees of help. I also like to provide tips to tourists about nice things to see around town, volunteer some of my skills to various non-profit organizations, and I strive to contribute to a friendlier and happier society in other ways.
People who know me also know that I proactively encourage Good Samaritanism, discourage scams (including illegal MLM/Pyramid schemes) and other frauds (Canadian government services have proven to be a very helpful and high quality resource), voting freely in elections (genuine participation in our government system reminds politicians that people care about Canada), etc.
Book reviews have been moved to my personal web site at http://www.randolfrichardson.com/books/ where I can have better control over content.
