And part of you is kicking yourself for not being like them and for not having reached that sort of finish line?
And the other part of you is wondering if maybe you haven't reached it because when they decided to stop, you didn't? That you kept going?
That's kind of how I feel a lot of the time.
I'm not sure if I'm really slow or just a late bloomer. But I'm trying to get better, and that's not nothing.
I've also been a volunteer for both Lollypop Farm and Red Cross Disaster Services, and I periodically mentor newer developers and students.
I think Gravity is my favorite movie, having overtaken the Shawshank Redemption. Monsters (Gareth Edwards) is another favorite. I loved Zootopia, Wolf Children, John Wick, and Tomorrowland.
TV favorites include The West Wing, Star Trek TNG, Silicon Valley, Big Bang Theory, Ghost in the Shell, and a lot more. Eden of the East is probably my favorite favorite. Bold, relevant, and challenging.
Books, I like pulpy scifi series, a little nonfiction (currently Facebook's history and The Big Short), and some graphic novels, mangas, and webcomics.
Recent podcasts include The X-Files Files, Penny Arcade, and more.

Lately I've been interested in how our education system, media, and social networks are shaping our culture into one of filter bubbles and echo chambers, selling us our own ideas rather than challenging us.
This is super visible in the current political races.
Debate has become argument has become hatred, and it feels like those institutions are driving us apart instead of pulling us together. Making us fear discussion and disagreement instead of embracing it, so that we've stopped learning from one another.
I don't know what to do about it, but I'm thinking about it.
