I've been doing tech work for over 20 years, and have embraced my curiosity along the way. I've been shocked by 110 quite a few times around the house (a few memorable times as a kid), and have been very interested in the strangeness that happens at the upper levels.
Tesla, of course, sparked a huge interest; I think we still don't understand a lot of the things he understood.
These days I'm more focused on software and health, but at a single phone call, I can rebuild servers, diagnose electrical hiccups, and optimize hardware before looking at software configuration.
I also am more of a hard-ass about dirty power than most of my peers.
