What are you putting a lot of thought into these days?

The fact that we can make the world we (want to) live in.

Who is your latest inspiration?

I have a couple of decades of experience working as a software engineer and consultant. Now I run a technology salon, where we help connect people with each other and useful technologies.

What makes Oakland special?

Oakland is a melting pot of ideas and people with enough rough edges to make it interesting and full of possibilities.

Share a childhood story that has influenced your life.

When I was a kid, my family immigrated to the United States. I learned a lot of English from watching cartoons one summer. For a while, I thought commercials were "Important Messages" - which has made me both cynical and pay attention to how the media influences our thoughts.
