Proof that I am a stubborn bastard

  • I have not used Microsoft Office in over 5 years. I use Mac OS and Linux.
  • I never use my employer’s email service. Prior to Google Mail, I used a private provider and forwarded my work email there.
  • I have never driven to work, in the last 4 years.
  • As a researcher, I do not belong to any one community.
  • I keep teaching an university-level XML course, even though I have been ridiculed for teaching such lowly technical issues.
