Uh… gee… about me…

I’ve always been kind of geeky I guess, got made fun of a lot as a kid, then there was like this nerd/geek revolution where it suddenly became cool and by the time I got to college it was awesome and a lot of guys really liked it – which was super nice, and now I think hipsters are kind of taking over nerdom which is really sad, but… we’ll always have 2007.

I’m particularly into astronomy, but it turns out it’s pretty competitive and there’s not a lot of demand for people that like space (just ask NASA) so I’m not pro.

I’ll read anything by Simon Singh, Stephen Hawking, and Govert Schilling (but only in English), and Marcia Bartusiak because they’re all fabulous authors.  Also, online I do kind of stalk Mike Brown.  A lot.

I know just enough about physics to be constantly ticked off when I go to see movies – a neutron bomb?  REALLY?  A neutron bomb?  So… as long as everyone is outside the blast radius, they’re all fine?  I don’t think that’s how neutron bombs work…

I wish Commodore was still in business, Apple was out of business, Jonathan Coulton was as famous as Nicki Minaj (although then he probably wouldn’t personally respond to my emails – oh yes, he did!), and I am positive I would enjoy long walks on the holodeck.

Oh and also, I would totally go gay for Jeri Ryan.

    Hi Loren! I am wondering if I could use your video of the Titius-Bode law for my Astro class. If yes, how do you require people using your work to give you credit? Thanks!
