I'm a manager. I manage a small software development team at an ISP which shall remain nameless. I was a software engineer for ages, took a couple years as a tech writer to recover from major burnout, and started my current job about a year ago.2. What do you think it's your biggest "geek trait"?
Who told you that geeks had big traits? Um, it's either my inordinate fondness of gadgets, my ability to come up with a plausible answer to almost any question, or the vast stretches of time I go between dates.3. How did you and redarius meet, and how long ago?
We met at the Digital Queers party at MacWorld in January of 1996 or 1997 or so. I'm not sure about the exact year (ask redarius
, but it's close to then. I forget which of our friends introduced us. Later that evening after respective outfit changes we ran into each other at Club Universe. I must have had a few cocktails cause the next thing I remember it was a few years later and he was bringing me ice cream when I was stuck at home with a cold. We're sort of like a brain that got split in two - we like the same stuff but have totally different approaches to just about everything. I like scotch, he likes jaeger, but we can both agree on tequila - that about sums it up.4. How would close friends of yours describe your personality to strangers?
Outgoing, friendly, easily distracted, too smart for my own good.5. What's your all-time favorite movie?
Oh, hard one. I'd have to say The Matrix
, but there are a lot of close seconds. I like Matrix cause it has some kickass action and some deep philosophy. I also like The Princess Bride
, Forbidden Planet
, and Raiders of the Lost Ark
Hey, I didn't even have to make this posting friends-only! Thanks for the questions, jensenpoet
. Who's next?
