Hello everyone. I'm Powercow, the most powerful cow in the universe. I'm a software engineer who has a lot of young kids and still manages to game sometimes. I like to read science fiction, and I'm always looking for good recommendations. Vernor Vinge is one of my favorite authors. I'm here because I don't like the direction chairman Pao is taking Reddit and I'm hoping this will be a good alternative. When I jumped from Digg to Reddit Digg essentially died, but somehow I doubt this move is a precursor to Reddit's doom. There's still some communities there I'd like to be part of.
