The human brain starts working the moment you are born and never stops until you stand up to speak in public.
Here's something for the pet peeve list that makes many technology wonks hard to listen to:
People asked a straightforward questions (especially in interviews) insist on starting their answers with "So".
Person 1: Where where are you from?
Person 2: So I was born in Canada but grew up in Silicon Valley.
Is "so" the new "like"?
