My name is marcio rocha pereira. Yes, i do like it in lowercase and without the last surname, and definitely without the diacritic on /ma/. And recently i have become fond of using once again my early-childhood nickname: baraco.
I’m a Libra with Sagittarius ascendant and Aquarius moon, who lacks a clear allegiance to any one ideology or school, being constantly plagued by a need to question and analyse everything, and unafraid of having different thoughts and opinions.
I was born few days short of 1980. I did live in many different places in Brazil, so much so that i don’t think of myself as ∈ anywhere. It was something like that: BH → Brasília → São Paulo → Goiânia → Brasília again → Curitiba (and now living on my own). And i do have many friends in many places, also. At least i do like to think so.
In school i’ve gone through mechanics and design. Other interests include anthropology, culture studies, philosophy, computers and media, programming, language and semiotics. Influences include Frank Herbert, Nietzsche, Derridá, Umberto Eco and Alvin Toffler.
My rather scattered web-presence encompasses a fotolog for random rants, a orkut profile, a last.fm for my music tastes, a flickr photo collection, links on furl, and a selection of what i’ve been reading online at google reader.
And, obviously, you can read the occasional ego-tripper posts…
