I'm a sucker for new things. I form habits until something better comes along.
I'm well-traveled, and like to think of myself as well-rounded. I like being part of a good story.
Developing an appreciation for how cities (and especially San Francisco) become better for the people in them. Urbanism, especially as it relates to transit, bicycles, and parklets is really interesting.
I am more or less a Silicon Valley stereotype; I work for a former startup that makes both software and hardware, we got eaten by a much bigger company, but it's cool because they're leaving us mostly alone. I try to fight the stereotype by being socialist and egalitarian: feminism, tenants' rights, social safety nets, education.
Technology in general.
Coming in not-last-place.
I prize competence; "specialization is for insects." I enjoy being good at things and also learning new things to be good at. I like it when other people are good at lots of things too!
Sometimes I am cool (and listen to Jenny Owen Youngs on vinyl), sometimes I am 14 (and listen to Owl City or Macklemore), sometimes I am nostalgic (and listen to Eve 6), sometimes I am fresh (and listen to whatever's on Hype machine), and sometimes I just really miss summer (and listen to Buck-O-Nine).
Indian (well, Nepalese), and soul food (collards, okra, ribs) are my comfort cuisines. I will go out of my way for good Thai or a tasty banh mi. My tolerance for spicy food is far higher than it needs to be, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
The worst thing I ever ate was boiled prickly-pear cactus, which I actually couldn't force myself to chew long enough to swallow. It was like slimy milkweed-flavored green beans.
Comfort food, for making up those calories.
The internet to remember things for me.
New places to explore.
Work/life balance to enable the rest.
(I can be talked into staying up late for a good cause.)
You want to go to the Exploratorium or one of the nerdy Long Now talks.
You just want to get a drink or a burrito and walk around the city.
