Карин Косина vka kyrah vka al-kira vka كِرا
Pyromantic, cognitive dissident, geek, adventurer, hacktivist. Runs OpenGL workshops at the lab every other year. Makes the best Arabic coffee outside of Syria. Listens to music that normal people consider noise; if properly inspired, will dance until dawn. Played through the Great Giana Sisters once (without cheating). Home base: Riyadh (reliable sources tell me that they have even named a mountain close to the city in my honour: كرا).
kyrah has been called all of the following at least once: a hacker, a bitch, a madwoman, a communist, a capitalist bastard, a sexist, a spy, a killer, a coward, a heroine.
