Guess I'm a typical online geek.

My personal homepage (with more info, and links to various projects and art works) is at :

I'm interested in, well, everything this wiki is about. But in summary ...

My current obsession, which I'm trying to figure out how to make a career from, is DesktopFabrication / SoftwareThatMakesStuff

TopThoughts is a list of some of my "best" (ie. longer, more coherent) writings.

My Software

A lot of my software can be found on GitHub :

Some projects that have pages here include :

Also :


I love music and occasionally write weird programs to compose it. (PhilsMusic, MusicalStuff)

I helped found Optimaes to understand more about money and economics.

I spent most of my 20s in academia thinking about ArtificialLife, PhilosophyOfMind, and particularly IndividualRecognition

I rave about OrganicArchitecture and how good dense, complex urban environments are ... possibly because I (sometimes) live in Brasilia


I used to have SleepApnea and didn't get enough oxygen. But after having my tonsils removed and losing weight, this is much improved.

I hate photos of me, so if I have to post one, might as well be somewhere interesting. (Atacama Desert, Northern Chile, Jan 2004)

Hi Phil, I just suggested the Eclectic wiki because that is the one I run! ;-) would you be interested in setting up the personal wiki tour? I think that the use mod tour would be cool also! Best, MarkDilley

: The IntellectualPropertyPolicyOfThisWiki states that it's a requirement that you put anything you post here into the PublicDomain.

Actually by and large your areas of interest match a lot with mine, but I am not into Social Justice as much as you do.
