“Later, he was to decide that Andrew’s life had been fractally weird. That is, you could take any small piece of it and examine it in detail and it, in and of itself, would turn out to be just as complicated and weird as the whole thing in its entirety.”
― Neal Stephenson, Cryptonomicon

Steve is a very funny and nice Twitterer and is pals with all the cool people online. I love a good name sake on the podcast even if he spells it incorrectly.

Steve’s Story: Never Trust an Optimistic Mountaineer
My friend Glenn is a super positive person, but when I go climbing with him, when things go wrong, his never give up attitude leads us to trouble, like the first time, when we went climbing at Smith Rock State Park.
