I was born a poor, black child. OK, not exactly poor, more middle class. The child part is true; it was far easier on my mom that way. I'm far closer to a luscious, chocolate brown than ebony. I'm a currently a Solar Technical Support Specialist for altE - http://www.altestore.com - an alternative energy equipment distributor. I'm no scientist, but I've consumed a steady diet of science books/media as long as I can recall. The first book I remember reading was Man in Space about Mercury 7. My favorite kids' t.v. show? Mr. Wizard. Lately I've been exploring the promise/problems of transhumanism/post-humanism. I've been reading/watching genre fiction a long, long time. My first convention was in Feb. 1979; a tiny gathering in Southern California called "Science Fiction Weekend." I wandered into a room where they were screening episodes of Commando Cody. I was transfixed, hooked, captured… doomed. Since then I've attended many a Westercon, Worldcon, NASFic, Galacticon, Gaylaxicon, Balticon, Equicon, Filmcon, Albacon, Fantasmacon, Boskone and Arisia.
