The horror of comprehensive health insurance »« The singularity approaches

Things are definitely turning up, anyone live in DC?



I have a … well it’s not really a job interview so much as a private brainstorming session on Space Exploration with some trade associations and manufacturers next month in Washington, DC. But there could be a consulting role in it for me and even if there’s not, it’s an issue near and dear to my dark atheist heart. I really do believe this is the future of humankind, and whether I have only a year or two left on this Earth, or a normal healthy lifetime ahead as all signs currently point to, I want to spend as much of that time as possible doing something that matters and something I like. After three years in near poverty working in dead-end tech support job, leading up to this last year of abject financial desperation caused in large part by unending anxiety over health issues, there’s little in the way of low pay or lifestyle sacrifice that could scare me away.

If there are any readers who live in that area we might be able to get together for a cup of coffee or something.

    Not in the hood. I’m in the Tampa bay area. But you hit the nail on the head. Doing – something- is important.

    I’ll send a link to this post to my daughter. She works at the NSF.
    If she’s in town, she would probably be delighted to chat with you.
    She’s a neurobiologist, and she’s interested in anything about science, since her Dad taught her well.

    No friends or family in D.C.

    That take off was the most pornographic thing I’ve ever seen in my life.
