<b>About the interviews</b><br><br>
VeggieBoard interviews are a way for us to get to know each other better. It is a way to acknowledge just how wonderfully varied a community we are.<br><br>
Every few days or so, a new interview will start and the old interview will be locked.<br><br>
Every VeggieBoard member is allowed to ask the amount of questions specified by the interviewee in the answers to the default questions. If they discover that they chose too high or low a limit, they may change their choice.<br><br>
Try to keep this thread about the person being interviewed. If you want to comment about things you discover you have in common or just elaborate on a response, pm them and make a new friend or start a new thread about it. This is intended to be a friendly thread, so please dont ask anything in a purposeful attempt to get a heated debate. Of course, nobody is required to answer a question that they do not want to.<br><br>
The current person being interviewed will choose the next person. They need to first pm them and ask if they are interested, then pm me to let me know. It is preferred that you pick someone that you do not know very well as the purpose of this thread is to get to know new people.<br><br>
Also, please keep in mind that any answers you post are viewable to complete strangers. There is some risk in that. Again, all questions are optional.<br><br><br><br>

Oatmeal: I have a couple of questions....<br><br><br><br>
1. What's your fondest memory of Hungary?<br><br>
2. Has your perception of "freedom" changed from the view you held while in Hungary from the view you hold now since living in the US for awhile? If so, how.

Hi all!<br><br><br><br>
I'm not missing, I was sleeping LOL! What an honor this is!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br><b>Question limit</b>: Screw limits <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br><b>Gender:</b> M<br><br><br><br><b>Birthday:</b> Jun 16 1976<br><br><br><br><b>Location:</b> San Fransisco Bay Area, California, USA<br><br><br><br><b>Dietary Path:</b> Omni -> Vegan<br><br><br><br>
(Dietarily, I'm a raw foodist, but I didn't want to write "Vegan -> Raw foodist", because my raw foodism is not an extension of my (ethical) veganism, but has other reasons (= my ongoing research and self-education about nutrition and biology <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">). I'm sure I'll be asked about it, so see below for more <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">)<br><br><br><br><b>Brief Intro:</b> I'm from Europe (born and raised in Hungary, but also lived in Austria for a couple of years).<br><br><br><br>
I have been programming computers since I was 12. I also studied computer science. About three years ago I had the chance to realize my lifelong dream of coming to the U.S. and found a software startup company. I'm the chief architect and head programmer, working about three shifts a day <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
I went vegan at about the same time I came to the U.S., circa 3 years ago.<br><br><br><br>
I have a lot of interests and generally like to learn and research things. I love the internet, both the idea and the technology (our company is developing internet related technologies). I read a lot, most of it online (as you can see I'm ALWAYS online <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">). I also like to garden and build projects.<br><br><br><br>
In private I try to be easy going and enjoy every day of life and experience, but always be mindful of what is happening around me and what I'm doing, and question and explain as many things as possible.<br><br><br><br><b>Picture:</b> <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/pics/showgallery.php?ppuser=1133" target="_blank">Photo Album</a>
