“I grew up reading speculative fiction and dreaming about alien civilizations and life on other planets. Now I live halfway around the world from where I was born and I'm finding the experience is not unlike that of the protagonists in some of those well-worn stories, homesick for a place that no longer exists and perpetually out of place, but thoroughly engaged in the experience of puzzling out how the pieces fit.”

What do you do?

I am dedicated to many forms of free culture, the principles of the open web, and authentic blogging with an individual voice.


I enjoy sharing my experiences on this planet through words, pictures, and sounds. I try to create something new almost every day and release much of it under Creative Commons or open source licenses for others to reuse.

What should we read?

Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond
