Hey, okay, so, I'm Colt. 20, white, male, pansexual, poly, Oklahoma. What a mix, right? I'm a sophomore in college majoring in Computer Engineering and minoring in Cognitive Science, both of which are very interesting to me. I grew up with computers and read a lot of sci-fi when I was younger (and still do) which I attribute to making me who I am today. A lot of Cory Doctorow's work, along with Time Enough for Love by Heinlein and Vinge's A Fire Upon the Deep are some of my favorites. I found HPMoR a while back and eventually found my way here, maybe last summer or so. I've been reading the sequences voraciously, and really need to start applying some of it to my life. :P

Like I said, I like computers, and I'm really interested in the mind and technology and programming. I'd like to work with new challenges and maybe on some AI (with enough mathematical rigor, of course) when I get out of college, but time will tell.
