He would flip on something so fast that you would forget that he was the one taking the 180 degree polar [opposite] position the day before. I saw it daily. This is a gift, because things do change, and it takes courage to change. It takes courage to say, ‘I was wrong.’ I think he had that.

The biggest status play at that dinner table, and at hundreds like it, was to work at the biggest company that maintained startup cred, the biggest place you could feel as though you were working on an imaginable whole rather than a tiny part.

Elspeth Beard is a hero of mine. She is one of the few women to have rode across the globe on a motorcycle, and she did so by herself, fighting accident and illness along the way.Plus, she rides a Bimmer.I would totally love to meet this woman. She’s done things I’ve only dreamed of.

The article about her… omg. Built her own panniers and brought a rivet gun along to keep ‘em together. Got her R60 going again after running it into a tree. Her passport (and visas) were stolen, but she sent off for them again. Nothing stopped her - and for much of the trip, it was just her.
Also, she mentions the bizarre custom of three-wide passing on a two-lane road - which is fucking bonkers when you first see it (and even more insane on a bike, I’d imagine).
She’s also a highly-commended architect. If there’s a Most Interesting Woman in the World, it’s her.
