Livin' The Dream

Happy Productivity Day, everyone.

My life is crazy.  It's hectic, there's disease, OCD, depression and other stuff.  But, when I put a certain spin on it, for a certain type of person, I'm really living the dream.  Let me spin:

I live in an area of the world with some clean air, brilliant people, and means to prosper.  I'm on good terms with people seeking to get and to give venture funding.  I'm on good terms with people who like to trade code snippets for fun.  Makers.  I lived in Silicon Valley before the boom, and survived the burst.  I live five minutes from one of the finest climbing gyms in the world.  My job is to make stuff people use and love.  My commute is less than 15 minutes.  I love the people with which I work.  I love my family, and they love me back.  I tell my kids I can do it (most anything) because I'm Daddy.  And they believe it.  For now, at least.

Yeah Happy Thanksgiving to you too. Americans need to realize that by and large we are ridiculously wealthy and free.

Not so sure about the clean air, but relatively speaking perhaps this is so.

    Good to "see" you checking in at LJ... and taking steps to preserve your LJ and Google+ histories!

    I "Searched" some of your archive looking for the fluorescent bulb post, but couldn't find it through 2009-02-06, and before that, LiveJournal no longer offers pages of your feed, just daily access,…
