Contra Costa Times profiles youth leader, Matt Peterson, of BAWUG, BAWRN, Surf and Sip: Here's where my age (35) comes into play. I figured Matt was maybe a very youthful looking 30-something, sort of like Cliff Skolnick. Instead, I find out that he was 19 when I first met him. Explains some of his early diffidence -- that is, slight shyness coupled with extreme knowledge -- and his energy. If only I still had that much juice.
Matt's history and plans are documented in this very sweet biography of him. Matt likes to be outside the religious wars because he likes to get things done. He's not a callow youth; he's a mature fellow, and I hope this post thoroughly embarasses him, as I hope the article did as well, except that he's got enough cool to say, yeah, that's great.
