I'm CTO of Choozy.me, and I love technology. In a recent forum for CTOs, I was shocked to find that I was the only one who still coded! The moment you quit coding is the moment your career starts dying! I'm moving away from large Enterprise Architecture, where nothing gets done and back toward my first love -- development. So, I'm starting to contribute and participate in more open-source arenas. My primary language is Java, but I've been learning Clojure recently.

comment How likely is serious injury in martial arts practice?
You may be right. I'm offering a newbie perspective, skewed by my own experience. At our dojo, the Grandmaster stresses "control" in sparring. I would assume that another interested party could find a similar Dojo, which was the point I was trying to make. If I thought I had a serious chance of getting a concussion, I wouldn't dream of going. We spar very hard at times, but always with control. I think a newcomer could find a Dojo with that kind of approach. In our Dojo control goes hand-in-glove with spiritual training.
