This project appealed to me because it gave me a chance to attempt to see the world through someone else’s eyes. That’s sometimes a hard thing for someone as self-centered as myself to do. But I’ve had the privledge of getting to know David over the past few months, and for those of you who only know him from this site, there’s a lot you don’t know.
My first time at his site, my first impression was “wow… he sure seems wound a little tight. Alternative sleep schedules?”
And then I found out he attended Rice University. That explained a lot to me (as well as anyone else who’s ever spent much time around Rice alums). David is driven and has great focus to be sure, but there’s another side to him.
Sometimes, he does strange yet yummy things to chickens. He has good taste in beer, and it’s easy to make him smile (even without the beer) He’s very shy the first time around people he doesn’t yet know, but he makes an effort to get to know everyone, and I think you’d be hard-pressed to find people who don’t like him.
Don’t get me started on the robots and other projects. They are either brilliant or insane, or perhaps both. I’m so social, I never have a chance to develop my vision in that way. Kudos to David for doing that.
His sense of humor is as broad as his sense of adventure, and he’s never shy about trying something new. And if that something new doesn’t work out, he’s man enough to laugh at himself.
My kinda folks. Not, you know… MY KIND in, you know, THAT way, but you know what I mean, right?
He IS kinda a buttoned-down tightass sometimes, though.
