Nescience - Mike.
San Francisco/Stanford. It is believed that at the smallest level, the circumstances which shape our lives are effectively random. Still others believe an underlying order lies at the very core of our existence, and although we are unable to grasp the complexity of that order, we are at least able to recognize that there IS an order at all. Was it a random twist of fate which brought him to study in the Bay Area? Was it chance that gave him a place to live in North Beach (but not necessarily a job) during the summer of 2002? Or is there some beautiful, yet ultimately inscrutible, reason for his cosmic bounces? Join Mike as he balances the quest for nescience with diversion from the "real" world as he descends into the latticework of the World Wide Web.

Rambles - Mike.
San Francisco. I'm a homegrown New Yorker who's trying to find a new life on the West Coast.

I am a 27yo college grad who moved to SF two years ago searching for art, music, culture, individuality, and diversity. I found it. I am into painting, music, guitars, djembes, and didgeridoos.
