About Me

ABOUT ME

Hmmm... Interested in doing something really good and having a really good time doing it. Excitable. Enjoys a ridiculous challenge or two. Has been known to party. ;) sometimes has fun. Sometimes campaigns. Would like to save the world with everyone else. Involved in co-operative development. También puedo hablar español (latinoamericano).

PHILOSOPHY

RSAnimate? http://comment.rsablogs.org.uk/videos/ We'll chat, I'm sure! Many debates to be had... Or we can just chill - it's up to you. I generally aim to do stuff which, if anything, impacts positively on other people. Pretty simple in theory. :P

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Setting: http://www.mariusztravel.com/zdjecia/wenezuela/77_wenezuela_roraima.JPG

Watching my friend, Jazz, do Kung Fu at 6.30am at `The Window` (La Ventana) of Roraima (border of Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana), an overhang at the highest tepuy in the world. It was more ridiculously *scary* than anything else... with me sitting on the raised bit of the rock and Jazz standing right on the edge... 1000 metre drop :O
