A lot of people in technology are SciFi fans. How did you get to be a fan, of what in particular and in particular what character do you most identify with?
For me, I'm a Star Trek fan and while I didn't watch it in its original run, when I was in high school in the mid eighties it was on Friday nights after the late local news (11:30PM). I remember coming home after working at the supermarket and waiting to watch the USS Enterprise after my parents went to bed. I have to say I was always a Mr Spock guy. The episodes I liked the best were the ones where he ended up in charge of the ship and was making the (obvious to me) correct logical decisions while the rest of the crew was worried that he didn't seem to care enough about the situation and people involved. The Tholian Web and The Galileo Seven are great Mr. Spock in command episodes.
While my emotional quotient has increased over time, I still agree with Mr Spock that logic over emotion results in better decisions in problem situations.
New Star Trek series came out after that and I watched them all, but it all started with late night reruns on Friday nights.
