I have a keen personal interest in how technology can be used to solve broader social and even geopolitical problems; if you have any thoughts on that front, let's have a beer and chew the cud - you never know, we may just make the world a better place.
Huge sci-fi fan as well (BSG/Trek run through my veins), and I love a good cup of tea. And Ovaltine. More than anything though, I love things with buttons, screens, switches, lights and toggles. I love tech.
