Start Here; Marginalia of my online life

Hey, glad you found me! Thank you for stopping by. Until Medium actually builds a real index that doesn’t mash all my comments and blatherings amidst my writings and calls all of it “stories,” this index page is where you should start if you are researching me because you saw a tweet or you are thinking about offering me a job.

This will be the only page in this publication. Seriously, who calls a note, scribbled on a crumbled up post-it note a damn story? That’s the same mind-set that gave our kids trophies for just showing up or peeing in a toilet bowl.

Thanks for finding me amidst the hoarding mess of a house that Medium has become. The writers are building shelves, labeling and organizing the cans. It’s what human beings do when faced with chaos. Keep it simple; make it work…

And, if you’re like me and don’t really like the scatter reading style the internet has given us and you’d rather someone just package this thing up in a book, just order this…. but, here is the free version if you want it.

My mostly personal stuff

My latest Political Projects

Publications that hold other gems I wrote

My Responses to Stories

Sometimes the responses to what others wrote is better than a story. You be the judge.

Classic Medium

Resume and shameless job hunting

The former I got tired of maintaining the tech bits and pieces of my blog, so I just moved everything here. My résumé if you want to give me lots of money and have me hang around all day.
