Not too much of a surprise…

You know I'm a quiz junkie, you know I'm a science fiction fan, so here goes… (thanks Poppy)

Update: I just now realized that Deanna Troi, the empathetic counselor, and Geordi LaForge, the geeky engineer, were tied in this quiz. How appropriate!

Your results:
You are Deanna Troi

Tilden Park

Sometimes, I can be a nebbish. I was  complaining (it's very possible you heard it) about how much of a city Berkeley was, and how hard it was for me, and how I missed being near cows. Well, I'd heard a lot about this place, but hadn't really been there. Come to find out, that I was 10 minutes (by car) away from one of the most beautiful places around, called Tilden Park. I had a delightful afternoon walking with a couple of friends, and saw some cows, even.

Summer Reading List

Well, it would hardly be summer without a reading list. I've got one. It's pretty long, and a bit schizophrenic (it's mostly religion and science fiction.) We'll see how many of the books on my list I'll get through. The first few books on my list I have on the sidebar on the right, and then there is a long list after that.

Environmental tidbits

Democracy TV

I had run into Democracy TV, a while back, but I re-discovered it in a much more mature state last week. It's basically a platform which takes advantage of "Web 2.0" and bittorrent. Particularly, what it does is allows you to subscribe to RSS feeds of videos, download them, and watch them, within an iTunes -like interface (read: easy to use.) All of the videos are free, and almost all are independently produced – free of commercials, etc.

An informal poll

I'm sitting in the living room of my friend who lives in the Santa Barbara area, resting up, enjoying good company, and just beginning the process of integrating all that has happened to me this year (there's a lot!!)
