I believe the world is a good place and getting better; that if each of us plays our part, this whole thing is going to turn out really well. Perhaps it's my Canadian roots, but I'm a believer in a humble form of confidence; the idea of just being nice to people; in being one's brother's keeper. I stand by my conviction that it is better to be optimistic than right.
I'm happiest hosting a dinner party with a big group of old friends passionately debating the ideas of the day. Or out on a ride with a friend talking about the next hill. Or working with a group to solve the next grand and noble challenge.
These days, in addition to my all consuming internet start up, I'm spending my time getting faster in the pool, better on the bike, working on learning the guitar, and diving into next interesting book.
Would be great to meet someone smart, fun, witty, optimistic, cool, curious and just basically kind.
BTW - if you really really like the Onion, we should definitely talk. (Favorite onion headline - "Gazebo Underutilized.")
I'd consider myself a cool dork and looking for the same. Enthusiasts, idea lovers, believers, humorists, thinkers, optimists, good spirits, together we stand.
