Hi! I'm Steve. I teach undergrad at one of Pitt's regional campuses. I have a Master's in Comp Sci and another in Divinity (and a ton of student debt). Spiritual and religious, but in my own special syncretic way: influenced by Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Paganism.

Marxist-Humanist, cis male, gay, and polyamorous.

I like both video and tabletop games. I hoard books and vintage tech. I <3 FOSS

Dear fellow cis people,

Trans women are women.
Trans men are men.
Nonbinary people are people.
Respect pronouns.
Respect names.
Respect people.


PS. Cis is not a slur. You are not being oppressed for being cis.

I am basically a giant teddy bear wolf thing. I offer hugs, glomps, head pats, scritches, belly rubs, and any other reasonable signs of affection peeps might be in need of today.

If that's not your thing, that's cool too. Boundaries and personal comfort are important. But the offer is there for those who might want or need it.

Gonna go for a walk, then make more coffee, then get to work.

If you have $4 and like cyberpunk, help me put some food in my kids' mouths!
"This is secretly the greatest and also funniest cyberpunk point and click adventure game on Steam. Very low-fi art style but the gags are just too good to pass up, and a lot closer to a "real" cyberpunk dystopian future than most favorites of the genre."
