Friends: I have a journal entry on why I add people as friends on LiveJournal. Summary:
Index: A handy-dandy by-category index of my journal entries can be found here. It will hopefully allow you to find journal entries of mine that you will find interesting (find a category that you relate to, and explore the associated entries). It is also a good place to stop by and say "hi".
Summary: The table below provides lots of "high-level" info, with links to more detailed discussions.
Polyamorous Meta-Humanist: Polyamory is about responsible non-monogamy. About more love, more honesty, more communication, more connection. But you can still like me (and vice-versa), even if you aren't poly. I'll allow it :-) Meta-Humanist is a word I've made up as shorthand for Secular Humanist and Transhumanist.

If you would like to discuss mutual interests, express shock and horror over some interest of mine or another, etc. etc., you are encouraged to comment here.
Unfortunately, if I do not also repeat at least a subset of the above
interests using LJ's "normal" interest mechanism, it will appear, when
you are looking at my pages, as though we do not have any interests
in common. How unfortunate!
