Buzz of the Day #2428

We stepped out of Mad Max with that post-movie buzz, its heart-pounding music in our heads and our bones still resonating from the climactic clash at the story’s close.

I haven’t seen Dan for a while now, but when I sent him a message yesterday he leapt immediately to make something happen, so we met him and his friend Oliver in downtown Berkeley tonight. After taking his tour doing some neuroscience work in Industry, he’s soon to begin working on his PhD at Berkeley. We were at similar points in our lives when we both worked at the lab, and from there we diverged – Dan to academia and myself to a career in programming. He’s always good for conversation and I’m curious to see how things work out for him, partly because I feel like he’s living a life I might have pursued myself.

We will be staying in touch – he still has a book of mine, after all.

  1. I saw Mad Max on the same night (Saturday the 16th) in L.A. Total coincidence!
