about: I try to express ideas on HN as directly as possible and without mincing words. Sometimes that results in great discussions and other times I miss the mark.

I also try to exercise the idea in G. H. Hardy's words that "It is never worth a first-class man's time to express a majority opinion. By definition, there are plenty of others to do that."

Please do tell me why you think I'm wrong, with as much supporting logic and data as possible. I don't want to be wrong any longer than necessary. I regularly change my thinking on beliefs I previously thought were very strong.

I have deep respect and love for all conscious creatures.

Update: After ~10 years, I decided to "retire" from HN for the most part. At this point I've become a very different person from who I was when I started here, and the community has also grown orders of magnitude larger. I've learned a lot, grown a lot, and it was a great experience being an early member of the HN community. Thank you!
