People I know!

These are some of the other individuals I have the pleasure of building my life around. My concept is to build a database of bio information on my friends, enemies, acquaintences, etc, so that I can drop hyperlinks (depth of information) into anecdotes about these people. If you don't want my take on you appearing here, let me know and I'll knock it off.

Long Lost People List: a list of people who've completely gone off my radar, but I still wonder about. If you're on this list, let me know what you're up to.

Otherwise, feel free to browse my acquaintence list. Don't take anything too seriously.

If you know me and want to know why you're not here, the likely answer is that I'm getting to it. This is going up on an as-needed basis, meaning that until I reference you somewhere else on the site, you're unlikely to appear on this list.

Big Wheels in Berkeley
I scored a set of west-coast wheels today at the Ashby BART station flea market. It's a very tall schwinn road bike, black, deceptively heavy but smooth-riding. Thirty-five dollars to boot. I oiled and cleaned the works, dialed in the bakes and took it out for a shake-down cruise immediately. Nice riding on a beautiful saturday, realizing how out of shape I am as I wheezed my way though the hilly area behind the Berkeley campus.

After about an hour I started to get the swing of it. Made some minor mechanical adjustments (including a free wheel truing at the bike collective on Shattuck), drank a few liters of water and started finding my groove, cruising up and around and ending up with a beautiful view of the whole bay. The roads here are not kind to the speed inclined -- too many stop signs and crosswalks and lights -- but it was good to get out and proj for a while. This changes my summer dramatically.
