About mean online vitae of sorts
Righties and Romans (and cynics :-) might call me sinister, but i'm a nice guy—that's common. I score beyond scale on the Wechsler—that's uncommon, but i doubt it's gotten me very far.
I work on ideas i think have promise in changing the world. I help organizations adapt open source software and use social computing in support of collaborative work. I rarely watch sports except to learn something in a sport i play. When i cycled and raced, i trained and rode 10000km yearly for years, until i burned myself out, but still i prefer doing to watching.
I read anything and everything, from food labels and dictionaries to Internet news and blogs to documentation and manuals. If “we read to know we are not alone,” i must be awfully lonely —help, help!
