As I write this, mere minutes after being signed up for tonight’s UDLS, there are four hours remaining in which to draft a presentation. Lacking enough time to come up with something good and interesting, I will make do with something shitty—and hopefully interesting. So join me for an alphabetized list of concepts and ideas that I, personally, find quite fascinating. (As carefully defined and honed over many years on my LiveJournal profile interests list.) No coherent theme or thesis is promised, only a pleasant romp through the oddities of human history, technology and thought. Refreshments will not be served, enlightenment is not guaranteed.
