TechRider's Interests


Writing, classic sci-fi, history, and the rarity that is political discussion conducted calmly, respectfully, and with logic instead of party loyalty.


I listen to classics from the 70s and 80s, and I enjoy most electro swing.


Anything OTHER than a rom-com, comedy, anime, or a badly dubbed foreign film. Pretty much action films, war movies, westerns, steampunk, sci-fi, and horror.


My taste in TV is the same as my taste in movies.


I'm waaaay behind on my reading list.


Theodore Roosevelt, Elijah McCoy, Nelson Mandela, Lewis Latimer, Garret A. Morgan, Preston Tucker, Octavius V. Catto, Sojourner Truth, Bass Reeves, and Bessie Coleman.

Hello! I've never encountered a virtual musician. I know of a duo named Yello that put on a virtual concert some years ago, but they never called themselves virtual musicians. Interesting!

Thank you for accepting my friend request!

If you’re looking for a good place to start in science fiction, I would suggest Neuromancer as it covers most of the current day emerging technologies and even scarier ones to come that seem perfectly plausible - way ahead of its time acknowledging the existence of virtual reality and β€œthe matrix” long before they were even concepts!

My waffling over - it’s great to have a fellow tech head amongst my friends list. :)

thanks for accepting my friend request!! i've been meaning to get into sci-fi; what's your favorite book/series?

Truth be told, I've spent most of my life (thus far) face-down in technical books, reading for my profession and not for pleasure. It's time I changed that.
