Nice, but not a pushover. Awesome wrapped in humble.

Personality-wise: sarcastic and occasionally cynical, but also passionate about a variety of causes, and fighting the good fight. Also occasionally a goofball and can have an odd sense of humor.

Walking around town with a friend, discovering and enjoying new things makes for a fine time. I have great friends, and am loyal.

I like laughing to the point of tears. If we crack each other up, that's perfect.

I've run seven marathons. They hurt. Training for #8 now: Clearwater, FL, 1/17/2016.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Professionally: Writing about technology
Not-so-professionally: Training for a Boston Qualifying marathon time in 2016.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Coming up with fun stuff to do. Making things happen when it counts.

My favorite meal: sauteed peppers and onions, and fried plaintains, in Nicaragua.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Running shoes, coffee, newspapers (fine, news sites), The Marmot (my windbreaker), and a sense of humor. Five's fine for me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Comedy, politics, the move away from fossil fuels, how to avoid stretching.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There are no typical Friday nights, but I do love live music, comedy, and movies. Sometimes I have to go to sleep early to be up for a Saturday run. Other times I enjoy hitting the occasional dive bar or finding some decent fun theater.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a heated mat for my cat for the winter. I call it The Cat Immobilizer. She's pretty much glued to it until Spring.
