I’m one of those people who must have my computer desktop clear of icons. If your desktop has icons all over it and you ask me to help you with your computer, I’m going to want to throw everything in the trash. I wonder if most people would even notice?

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
