Software. I'm also pretty good at making good looking solder joints, but that's where my tangible skills end. I was in the presence of physical hackers for years, though, so I can at least talk the talk.
A Mars colony? Solve world hunger or energy shortages? Homebrew beer?
Founder of Blank Slate Systems, recently taught CS at CU, too many years of grad school, CS undergrad from CU back in the day. Mostly I focus on my startup.
