I suppose I should introduce myself.

I've been reading Overcoming Bias and Less Wrong intermittently for more than a year. I only recently became active, posting a few comments and attending a meetup in Irvine, CA.

I'm a 25-year-old computer systems administrator for businesses in L.A. county, but my real passion is philosophy, and I hope to return to school and become a philosophy professor one day.

Though I was raised an evangelical Christian and pastor's kid, I now write the popular atheism blog Common Sense Atheism and also host three podcasts: one on philosophy, one on meta-ethics, and one on Christianity. On that site I've also posted many Less Wrong-related posts.

P.S. Thanks to orthonormal for this post and for a fun list of 'instant gratification' posts on Less Wrong.

I've been impressed with CSA, and the "digest of LW sequences" posts are really well done. Keep up the good work!

Thanks.

But, note that I'm not blogging the sequences at CSA. I'm blogging through all of Eliezer's writing, chronologically. One day I may return and attempt one-post summaries of some of the shorter sequences, but I'm hoping somebody on Less Wrong will beat me to it.
