I moved to the Bay Area since if you're in software, like me, this is the place to be. And there was a company here nice enough to want to give me a job. (It of course also helps that there are lots of nice people here, no winters and a big red bridge.)
A big interest of mine is music. I've been singing in vocal groups before but don't do that right now. Sometimes I do a bot of hobby DJ:ing and music of my own. Check me out on https://soundcloud.com/niklas-lindholm and http://www.mixcloud.com/djdotnik/
A while ago I was taking a couple of improv comedy classes lately. That was a lot of fun! Perhaps I'll pick that up again.
Other than that I like movies like Terminator, Star Wars, Bond, Tarantino, Fight Club, Crouching Tiger and just generally good movies. I love crazy things like Naked Gun and Austin Powers. My DVR is recording Big Bang Theory, Two and a half men, Mad Men, True blood etc. A while ago I finished Breaking bad and I'm now working my way through Game of Thrones. Next up might just be House of Cards..
I enjoy reading books that tells you how the world really works, like Freakonomics, Outliars, The undercover economist etc. (All those are highly recomended!) And yes, I did read all the Stieg Larsson books before you did, in Swedish. :-)
My musical taste leans towards the dance floor. Disco, house, anything with a pumping beat that also has a good melody and vocals. But since I'm so much into music in general I like a lot of different things. For a wedding once everyone was asked to tell their favorite song ever. How do you answer such a question??
- People that make me laugh
- People that make me think
- Coca Cola
