This weblog was started in 2003 and is a collection of notes primarily on photography but lots of other things tossed in as well.

This site is powered by WordPress, an open source content management weblog system and was built on a Macintosh computer running OS X and yes, I’m a Mac-zealot and post about things Mac often. It is hosted by David Clark at A2 Hosting.

I also have a WordPress-hosted version of this site with parallel content going back to 2012 here: http://rwanderman.wordpress.com.

The first time you comment here your comment will go into moderation. It’s automatic, not based on what you say. Once approved you can comment at will without moderation. If you comment on an entry, your comment will appear on the sidebar. The last 10 comments will appear there and will be supplanted by each new comment that comes along. Comment spam is deleted by robot (Askismet) and by human (me) as it is discovered. Off topic or innappropriate comments are deleted as I find them. Some comments get hung up in the spam filter for one reason or another and if they are legit I’ll find them and post them so be patient if this happens to one of yours.

I’ve been interested in virtual communities for quite some time, both the software that allows us to build them and the kinds of social interaction that they enable and I’ve been involved with a few successful ones including flickr where I host most of the photography displayed at this site.

Our Place
My wife Anne and I live in a traditional saltbox house on four acres of mostly woods with a pond and a stream in a small town called Warren in the northwest hills of Connecticut. From time to time I document some piece of our lives on this site.
