5 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

OK, Micki tagged me, so here’s my 5 things you probably didn’t know about me. This blog meme started with Jeff Pulver. Others who have been tagged are Irina Slutsky, Zadi Diaz, Steve Garfield, Chuck Olson and Bre Pettis.

— A first proud geek moment was when I created an animated version of the opening sequence of Monty Python’s Flying Circus on my Commodore VIC-20, in Commodore ASCII. If i ever find the data tape i saved it to, i’ll post it.

— I’m now working for my 5th San Francisco based Internet startup. In chronological order: Studio Verso, Phoenix-Pop Productions, Fast Forward Networks, Inktomi, PodTech.

— No, I didn’t cash out handsomely at any of the above, though I did turn down a job at Yahoo! in 1996.

— I once sold magic mushrooms to an undercover cop in college. That didn’t turn out so well.

— I’ve handled poisonous snakes and lived. This was when I was traveling through southeast Asia in 2002.

OK, my turn to tag 5 people. Paul Boutin, Jackson West, Ryanne Hodson, Schlomo Rabinowitz, David Pava, tell us your 5 things.
