David was indeed very bright and I miss him, much as I tossed him on and off of ignore for being obsessive. I don't regret either - he was bright, and, obsessive.
A son of one of my cousins (Cal Tech) joined for a bit. He is interesting as he started out the world's quietest kid and had different experiences as he grew up (street racer, etc.) I remember him as barely talking at our Christmas get togethers, though more and more each year. When I last saw him he was well into the tech community, and he and his wife and daughter were clearly happy to see me show up. They gave me a vietnamese luncheon - they knew I was wacko for vietnamese food and she was from there. One of my paintings was on the wall and that didn't look like a new positioning.
I have a very faint memory of being solicited myself, but am not sure. When I am not interested, I drop stuff fast. Maybe it was in a dream state.
