Oh, hi, Eric! Thanks so much for taking a second on your last day at Social to tell us more about yourself. Let’s get started…
Eric Riley Allen
Lead Developer, Internet Alchemist
How would you describe your job to a kid?
I make the Internet work
The Good Stuff:
What do you bring to Social beyond your mad skills?
I think we can all agree that it’s my acerbic wit and pretty phenomenal diction.
How long have you been a raging Socialite?
Since the first official day, April 1st 2010.
What did you want to be when you younger?
You’re headed into the Hunger Games…to die (‘Cause you’re not Katniss). What would you have for your last meal?
“I call this Turf and Turf. It’s a 16 ounce T-Bone and a 24 ounce Porterhouse. Also, whiskey and a cigar. I’m going to consume all of this at the same time, because I am a free American.”
Best/Favorite/Current series on Netflix?
Best – House of Cards, Favorite – The Office (US), Current – Lilyhammer
What did you call your grandma?
If you could be anywhere in the world right this instant, where would you be/what would you be doing?
If I had the power to make that come true, I’d be exploring Son Doong Cave, preferably with my girlfriend and our dog, but I’m not going to be picky when it comes to that kind of wish granting.
Any party tricks?
Bringing up random facts that are of no importance to anyone and that no one really cares about. Also, drinking lots of beer.
Favorite thing to cook?
Grilling up a nice steak on a Spring or Summer evening with a cold beer.
Waffles or pancakes?
Wow, this has been a real treat! Thanks for your honest wit and all you’ve done for Social. Go enjoy your last donut…ever.
