Welcome! I’m a self-taught AI researcher on sabbatical to coordinate a neighborhood in central San Francisco where hundreds of friends in coliving homes live within a 10 minute walk of each other. It’d be as homey as a small town and as lively as a college campus, while still having all the advantages of being right in the middle of a big city. Even as a kid, I pinky-swore with my siblings that we'd live in 3 adjacent houses in one culdesac.
