I think my two guiding principles are empathy and long-term thinking; and from those two naturally comes kindness, because it just frickin' makes sense.
I engage in conspicuous non-consumption. I try to understand the context and implications of every notable observation. People are more fascinating to me than machines, but machines are more profitable to work on for the time being. I don't choose the profitability of work for its own sake, but for long-term security. In terms of safety nets and support systems, I'm an orphan.
On the theme of long-term thinking (again), sustainability is (quixotically) a big deal to me (Ask me about the utility-scale photovoltaic industry!).
I bike a lot, and I spend a lot of time at climbing gyms. Sometimes I run, and feel awesome. You might be able to stalk me in real life at Beat the Blues at La Peña on Wednesday nights.
