expand_less Life - I like juggling, going for long walks & long talks, sitting quietly, and listening to many kinds of music. Traveled across the U.S. for three months in 1991 when i moved from Massachusetts to California, and was in Sri Lanka for three years from 2002–2005.2002–2005. Now i enjoy living in community at [[http://walnutstreetco-op.org/|Walnut St. Co-op]] in Eugene, Oregon. My [[http://ourpla.net/|home page]] has more about me, as does [[http://johnabbe.wagn.org|my personal Wagn]].

Geek - My dad distracted me from playing computer games (on his company's teletype machine connection to an offsite mainframe) by offering to get me one of these new-fangled personal computers if i would go through some BASIC tutorials. I was thrilled with my Commodore PET, and even moreso when we upgraded it to 32K(!) RAM, more than i could imagine ever using.

Big picture - I have a long-running interest in the [[http://ourpla.net/cgi/pikie?ProcessArts|process arts]], including [[http://ourpla.net/cgi/pikie?NonviolentCommunication|Nonviolent Communication]], [[http://ourpla.net/cgi/pikie?OpenSpace|open space]], [[http://ourpla.net/cgi/pikie?GiftEconomics|gift economics]] and of course [[wiki]] itself. All in the service of the culture shift toward more [[http://ourpla.net/cgi/pikie?AssumptionsOfPowerWithCulture|power-over]] ways of seeing, being and doing.
