The recent surge in the price of bitcoin didn't get me excited about bitcoin, but reminded me of all the ways in which we subtly (or not so subtly) transfer wealth between people without actually adding anything of value. Sometimes I wonder whether I'm really walking my own path or just so hell-bent on being my own person that I'm actually being contrary... who wants to be that guy?
Actions speak louder than words, but words can precipitate monumental action. It's essential to me that I communicate well and understand others, and to the extent that I can, I strive to facilitate harmony; you grok?
Self-expression is an important part of my life, although few would consider me an artistic person. The universe blessed me with an analytical mind, and an ability to understand and communicate complex ideas simply. I really enjoy learning about ways to live with purpose, and sharing what I've learned with those around me.
