As part of the interview you suggest three pieces of gear and somebody else to be interviewed by Ben. Casey Greene, a next-gen Hellbiker and mapmaker from Montana apparently nominated Luc and me, and wanting to say something to someone, I accepted.
Here's the link with what I wanted to say, nicely edited, as well as who I think he should also interview, and my three favorite pieces of gear currently.
As for hedonic adaptation, Bono sings it well, too:
"It's no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest.
It's no secret ambition bites the nails of success.
Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief;
All kill their inspiration and sing about the grief."
From "The Fly" on Achtung Baby, 1991
