Mike has been a software engineer far longer than he would like to admit. He has strong opinions on baseball, software, science fiction, comedy, contract bridge, and European history, any of which he's willing to share with almost no prompting whatsoever.

    When Al Gore meets St. Peter, he will justify his life by saying that his internet enabled the world to listen to Per-Olov Kindgren play the guitar on YouTube. It might just work.Report

    One of the best 30 minutes I ever spent in an airport… Stuck on a layover on a business trip and had gone down to a deserted end of the concourse to get away from the mob. After I had been there a while a man showed up with a guitar case, took the guitar out, then sat in the corner and played classical pieces for a half-hour. He was quite good. When I approached, thinking about a tip or something, he said he was only an amateur who had been born wealthy and was in town to pick up his new custom-built guitar. He and the guitar were both going to be sitting in first class wherever it was they were headed.Report
