Hi, ismeta here.

I came to Less Wrong via a circuitous route, betwixt and between unordered Sequence posts, HPMoR, Overcoming Bias articles, and XiXiDu's critiques, all consumed during marathon procrastination sessions. My opinion of the community has lurched ungainly from one extreme to another, and now resides somewhere in the vicinity of 'cautious admiration'. I have reserved judgement on most of the transhumanist / singularitarian issues that are discussed on LW as yet (citing ignorance), though I should probably throw in an early disclaimer to the effect that I currently hold extremely conservative views regarding the potential efficacy of cryonics.

I am an agnostic, with atheistic leanings, and my political opinions generally correlate with the centre-left.

In Real Life, I'm a biochemistry undergraduate from Sydney.

I look forward to finishing off the Sequences over the next couple of months, and I hope to become an active participant and contributor to LW.
