Why did you join Sunscrapers?
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I've always been fascinated with two things: figuring out stuff and building stuff. At first, I wanted to be a physicist, like my parents. Then, a programmer; I loved writing simple Basic scripts on my Commodore 64, then a little more complicated programs in QBasic, Pascal, and Delphi. I also used to spend lots of time making maps for FPS games. And I enjoyed my Lego bricks (I still do!)... I guess I wanted to be an architect as well ;) Finally, I fell in love with philosophy for its focus on finding an intelligible framework of reality (I chose it as my major and ended up with Ph.D.). My fascination in programming – which is both figuring out stuff and building stuff – never disappeared, though.
I also wanted to be a Jedi.
