What do you do best?

I figure out hard concepts and try to explain them clearly to others.

What makes you the best?

Standing on the shoulders of giants . . .

What are your aspirations?

To increase the world's storehouse of knowledge.  I do that in three ways.  First, by learning something I didn't know.  Second, by teaching people something they didn't know.  Third, and most precious, by figuring out something no one knew.

Biggest Success?

Persuading courts to keep the law from interfering with innovation on the Internet.

Most Challenging Moment?

Summoning the nerve to run off a cliff in Canada the first time I went paragliding.  [Totally worth it, by the way].

Favorite Motto?

"Some people say that you shouldn't tempt fate, and for them I cannot disagree.  But I never learned nothing from playing it safe; I say fate should not tempt me."  Mary-Chapin Carpenter

Favorite People?

My wife. 

Favorite Places?

The Big Sur coast in California

Favorite Products?

iPhone.

Current Passions?

Cooking.  Hiking.  Travel.  Yoga.  Video games.
