A Varied Life
I've been homeless, in prison, at Cambridge university, worked at a London startup, been an atheist, lived in Christian community, travelled, written a book.
I've taken an extraordinary amount of drugs to the point of madness.
I've learned Tai Chi and meditation from a Buddhist community. Spent nearly a year in Romania living with Romanians.
I taught myself to program. I've spoken to an audience of thousands at conferences and been a keynote speaker in India and New Zealand. I've written code used by millions of software developers.
A varied life and I'm not done yet. And I'm still (more and more) convinced that the only thing worth a damn, the only thing to live for (more important than believing the right things) is to love.
But love fiercely.
