Why is he following me?

If I like, follow, repost, retweet, favorite, comment on, or otherwise engage with you on the internet odds are it is because I believe you have done, said, or written something that is congruent with my values. Over the course of my life I have a developed this set of values to remind me why I am here. I frequently refer back to it when making large life decisions or even more mundane decisions (like what to post on a blog). These are the things I seek in myself and others. This is my list – qualifying for it doesn’t give you any special powers or notoriety – it simply means you have impressed one individual who is no more than a speck of stardust in a large universe.
