|Dear HN reader,|
The holidays are coming up! For some people, that means a month of nothing more than being "Home for the Holidays". For me in particular, I don't have much to do besides program, rock climb and hang out with family. My parents moved last year so when I come home from college I don't really have a group of friends to hang out with yet. Just me, my laptop, and my family's 24 pound cat to keep me company while I write code and read.
So, would you like to talk about something via Skype? Taking the bayesian approach, if you are reading hacker news, there is a better than average chance that you are really awesome. If you want to talk about hacker news or basket weaving or who would win in a fight versus PG or Stallman, then I can do that too (dibs on Stallman.) If you have a neat idea, then we can talk about the neat idea and what it would take to actually breathe some life into. And if you are doing neat things, then I have more questions than you probably have time for. Any way you dice it, I want to talk to you. I can usually pick up a subject enough to ask some interesting questions. I have a pretty open mind most days .
So, if you have some time on your hands and want to talk, send me an email. Please inclue 2 times/dates that could work for you. If you don't include a subject for us to discuss, then my plan is to just ask increasingly deeper questions about your life in general until we hit upon a subject to talk about or you hang up. If you include things to read, then I will do my best to read them and understand them before we talk.
But really, I would love to talk to people and hear new stories. In my head, this all sounds like it could be a whole bushel of fun and could be really interesting.
Have a good holiday!
