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.

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 15 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.
The category list is ever changing as I reorganize my sock drawer gives you a snapshot of what’s here. The category list has gotten long enough so categories should probably be called “tags” but I haven’t gotten around to migrating the categories to actual WordPress tags. I will as tags are more useful than categories for finding things.
All of the header images were taken by me, a variety of things from Japanese katazome prints on handmade paper to aerial images taken from commercial airliners. The images rotate; each time you visit the site (or refresh your browser) you should see a new image. More on the header pictures here.
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.
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.
