Name: Kurt von Laven
Location: San Francisco, California, United States
I have been a vicarious member of CleanPlace through my roommate, David, since September '09. I'm not a writer, but I'm jealous of those who are.
I am a wanna-be traceur-singer-mathematician studying computer science (specifically, artificial intelligence). With less charitable motivation, I've pulled a few crazy stunts during my recent stay in Madrid, including the one in the picture above, scaling the ramparts of a castle ruin in Sos del Rey Católico, earning €3.40 singing in the infamous Sol metro station, and hiking the final 110 km of the Camino de Santiago without purchasing any beverages (including water). I did not manage to tilt at any windmills. I've always wanted to search for a precise latitude, longitude, and elevation of a stranger's choosing if that strikes anyone's fancy.
