Hi, I have to say I’m thrilled to have found this space! Like many, I found my way here because of all the nonsense going on in that other place. I’m an older guy recently exiting a career of 30 years in and looking for what’s next. I grew up in an engineering family where math, science and self sufficiency mattered. After a long and circuitous route through , , , and , I chose a second career in medicine and . I specialized in pain, , and complaints. I’m a curious and open person by nature and love a friendly conversation. A few interest tags will give you an idea of what is rolling around inside this meat sack.

“At CF, real estate is our game. So it's only fitting"

It's Monopoly, but with higher rents and CF rules: first person to completely cover the map with empty high-rise condos wins, regardless of their debt! 😔

Also, if you stay in one place too long, or voice concerns about the rules, you go to jail.

@freemo I didn't come from Twitter but what drew me to the platform is one of the things driving migrants nuts. I like the servers have their own personalities. I love academics and intelligent banter so I've fallen in love with qoto immediately. Migrants seem to have an awkward adjustment to the idea of destination oriented posts and timelines. I think it's brilliant. But I still owe the migration credit cause I read about it in Reuters.
