I've been doing Topcoder competitions, reviewing, and copiloting projects for more than 10 years now. At this point I don't think I could do much else without a lot of effort, so inertia definitely plays a big part of why I'm still with Topcoder. I rarely "compete" anymore, but being a copilot allows me to work how I like to work, and on projects that are interesting and challenging.
Tell us about something in your life, outside of Topcoder, that you are most proud of.
I once set a record in a Tasmanian bakery for eating a cupcake in 13 seconds without using my hands.
If you were in charge of Topcoder for the day, what rule would you institute?
