One area I’m most proud of innovating in is Podcasting. I got involved because Ruby bought me an iPod in early 2004 and I wondered, “What can I make for the iPod instead of just consuming with it.” A few months later I started the 3URLs show on AudioActivism.org. On October 3, 2004 I released the podcast episode 3URLs 10/03/04. Thanks to Ibiblio for hosting the mp3s and website for all these years.
Recently I’ve started a new show called Flathead Monster. It’s just interviews with interesting people about what they do. I still have a RSS feed for FHM but I also share it on Youtube. As one does in 2019.
My first episode on fhmon.com is with Brendan Love and we talk about tattoos.
Here is a collection of writing I’ve done over the years. Some of these were written for blogs and others were published in newspapers. These are the ones I’m most proud of. Not because of their flair. But because I was able to get across one or more ideas I really cared about. Check back because I’ll update this list over time.
I’ve been daydreaming for awhile about building a tiny house on wheels. A lot of them are built on trailers. Makes sense. This way you can tow it with whatever truck you want. Seems smart to be able to decouple the vehicle and stow the house in a small spot.
But for some reason I’m really fascinated with permanently attaching a tiny house to a flatbed truck. Part of the reason is my love of cars and trucks. I’ve been working on them on and off since I was fourteen. Lots of stories about those days. Another time. Another reason is the sculptural possibilities and the travel nature of it. More RV than shed out back.
You may have noticed I put images up here to keep a record of my inspiration. Here are two more.
I want to put a tiny house version of this awesome church…
I am very excited to announce that in early October I start my new job at Caktus Group in Durham, NC. It’s a new position at Caktus with a newish mission. How’s that for vague? 🙂 Once it’s launched I’ll tell you more.
This is a very positive step for me that will have a profound effect on my life in many different ways. For starters I’ll be working in downtown Durham and be able to bike to work!
PirateBox is a self-contained mobile communication and file sharing device. Simply turn it on to transform any space into a free and open communications and file sharing network. Inspired by pirate radio and the free culture movements, PirateBox utilizes Free, Libre and Open Source software (FLOSS) to create mobile wireless communications and file sharing networks where users can anonymously chat and share images, video, audio, documents, and other digital content.
This is a great example of the “moment” style I want to capture. Casual but posed. A portrait that is carefully composed and not seemingly random. Fashion photography can have this quality I suppose. The work of elsvo has it all the time.
