It seems there’s something in the Blogosphere called tagging. I don’t know how it started, but I guess someone came up with the idea of saying 5 secrets about yourself. You have Golbguru of Money, Matter, and More Musings to thank for this list.
0) Because I’m a software engineer, I have to start with 0. I did this one yesterday with my take on Self-Appreciation Day
1) Off the top of my head the only two books I can remember finishing are Rich Dad, Poor Dad and the Great Gatsby. On the other hand, I typically spend 14 hours a day in front of a computer (9 of it required for my job).
2) I became a member of Mensa just to put it on my resume. It tends to get interviewer’s attention.
3a) My favorite TV show of all time is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I can’t imagine any way to improve it.
3b) My favorite bands have a way of being one or two album wonders from the mid 1990’s. Such bands include Elastica, the Toadies, and Poe.
4) My dream jobs (in order)
a) Football Film Guru – I don’t know if this is really a job, but I’d love to spend 12-14 hours a day analyizing a team’s strategy and tendancies. Bill Belichick, you have my e-mail address, I’m waiting.
b) Statistical Analysis for the Red Sox. I already spend an hour or two in a fake baseball league. I’d love to use sabermetrics to be the next Bill James.
c) Technology researcher for VCs – This might be the most realistic. I love technology, but especially any new application on the web.
5) If I you had asked me a year ago what I thought I’d be blogging about it would be in order Technology Trends, Boston Baseball and Football, Health and Fitness, then Personal Finance.

So it’s time to continue the pyramid scheme. I’ll tag:
