I like new things. I guess you could call me a neophile. I get a little buzz when I get a new SMS or email. It's probably why I also like checking my twitter, and facebook, and google+, amongst other things.
But I also like old, familiar things, so I guess I'm not a true neophile. The idea of using something until it's used up, and using things for non-standard purposes.
It makes sense, then, that a combination of new and old, would be especially appealing to me. I signed up for Amazon's AWS service yesterday (What else would you do on a Friday night?). I first saw the AWS console with its myriad of tabs - each one promising new and exciting opportunities. I also started a new project on sourceforge (after being confused by its myriad of options). I didn't realise all the things sourceforge does apart from project and code hosting!
