You can find out more about me over on my primary homepage: steevithak.com.
My day job is running a small website design and hosting company. I'm an advocate of free software (free as in freedom, not free as in cost). I've been writing software most of my life; mostly in C but I also use Perl and other languages as needed. To read more about my software work, check my Advogato profile.
This is MySpace so I suppose I should point out that I listen to music. I probably even listen to some of the same bands you kids do. I enjoy a pretty wide range of musical genres, some people think that's a little weird. If you have any of Easley Blackwood's Microtonal compositions on your iPod, this may be a warning sign that you're weird too.
I'm an amateur photographer, or maybe it's semi-professional now that my photos are being published more often? For many years I shot 35mm film on a Canon A1 and later a Canon T90. I still use the trusty T90 occasionally but mostly I use a Canon 40D digital SLR these days. You can see a few of my photographs over at flickr. My phone camera stream is also hosted on flickr.
I spend some of my spare time debating cognitive science and theories of consciousness with robot geeks at the Dallas Personal Robotics Group and sifting through robot news. I'm a contributing editor for Servo Magazine, which sometimes publishes my photos as well as my words. I've also written for assorted other magazines. If you want to know more about this sort of thing, check my robots.net profile.
I also have an interest in restoring classic video arcade games. My VAPS profile provides a list of games I'm currently maintaining.
Who I'd like to meet:If you see me around, don't hesitate to introduce yourself. I prefer to add people as myspace friends who I actually know online or in meatspace.
