    Personally I don't celebrate Christian holidays, so there's nothing much to be managed. I'll be working for a few hours tomorrow, but from home, since the office closes for a week. I have really been...

    I reached the 5-year mark this year -- it's been over 5 years since I last operated a motor vehicle. I suppose that counts as a highlight. I don't even think I've ridden in a car more than a dozen...

    Well, I have direct deposit for some things too. But with a paper check, which I sometimes get from freelance work and such, an application on my phone can take a photo of the front and back, and...

    Neither did we, actually. I wrote a lot of little notes to my parents telling them who called. I don't miss that!

    Sure, they really reduce the need to actually go somewhere else. Instead of going to a store, I go online and have stuff delivered. Instead of going to the bank to make a deposit, I photograph a...

    It's not changing the culture of young people. It's changing the culture of all people. I turn 60 next summer, and I would never want to go back to the tech I had growing up. A phone (mini-computer,...

    I lust after a Cintiq Companion! That would be just awesome for freelance design work.

    I do have a tablet, though. And two Nooks, and a smartphone, and two desktop computers. I love and use them...

    Two. One Pacific Reach, a quasi-folding bike, that I use most of the time, and one full-suspension mountain bike that I sometimes use for commuting, either because it's rainy (which makes the disc...

    A badly broken shoulder that required two surgeries kept me off the bike for nearly a year; I was simply unable to use my right arm much. I walked most places. My commute (once I recovered enough to...

    That might not be the case; relatively few people commute into SF by car. It's just too expensive and difficult to park there. Many drive to the Caltrain and BART parking lots in the suburbs and take...

    You know those powered exoskeletons are real, right? Still in the prototyping and testing phase, but they aren't just a fanciful concept. They're actually being used to help people regain locomotion.

    Ok, I know this isn't a wheelchair. But it is an interesting handcycle.

    Yes. I've put my 20-inch wheel bike in them. Our local transit agency's rules say the wheels must be 20 inches or larger. Be careful with your rear derailleur if you have one, though. With the...

    I almost always come to a complete but brief stop, even if there's no other traffic visible. As long as I can maintain my balance, I don't put a foot down unless I need to signal the cross-traffic...

    It appears that you have to pick up the bike, no shipping. So unless you're local to the seller, it may not be a good deal.

    Now I don't feel quite so silly for wearing a full-face downhill mountain bike helmet on the street.

    Owowow! The broken jaw sounds awful. Heal well!

    I think what's limited here is your idea of what constitutes a date. Cruising around the city is only one of thousands of possibilities. Use your imagination! And you are most certainly not limited...

    That is expensive! Zipcar charges less than half as much.

    Car sharing and ride sharing are two very different things, as has been pointed out. Car sharing is essentially rental by the hour, and requires you to drive the car yourself. Services like Uber,...

    It's no longer customary to pick up your date at home. You meet where you're going, and each person transports themselves as they see fit.

    In fact, I was transporting myself to all my dates 25...

    If you're in San Mateo, bike theft will not be a big problem. In San Francisco itself, yeah, I wouldn't turn my back on my bike. But I've lived in San Mateo for 5 years and there are places where...

    We have some of it around here, although it seems to be gradually disappearing whenever any updates are done to the parks. And it was never as elaborate as the stuff you show in your pictures. It's...

    I meant to ask earlier but forgot. Are you going to Eugene to get Bike Fridays? Co-Motion bikes?
