Between obsessing over very hoppy IPAs I seem to be drawn to various (read: way to many) projects that generally involve disruptive technology. Some are as simple in concept as making a car go fast for no really good reason or making levels for video games, others are more esoteric concepts like converting a farm to full solar power or developing a helmet that would create a holodeck in the modern world. My philosophies about this generally follow this vision: If I have to pick between fast, cheap, and right, I generally pick fast and right. My initial builds of these various projects are not pretty, but they work and do amazing things. Quick example: Steve Jobs would claw his eyeballs out if he would have seen my computer. It has hoses pumping coolant everywhere, but how many desktop computers have 8 processors and 2 video cards cooled by water? I believe in efficacy over aesthetics and rapid iteration over excessive planning. Simply put: get a cool idea, build it quickly, test it and fix it until it works, polish it to perfection. Pretty much everything I do follows these ideals.
Aside from that, I am learning to cook, I love good beer, I love exploring San Francisco, I love shooting and getting shot by plastic airsoft bbs (on a regulated field), I love to experiment in the bedroom, and I love any machine that can make me go fast. One of my life goals is to go into space before I die.
Also, if this makes you laugh, we will very much get along:
"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
I wonder if Robert Frost was thinking about anal sex when he wrote this?
