This website is a personal space, a dorky man cave of sorts that I use (and abuse) to test new web technologies and philosophies. It's part of the Indieweb, which means I like to own my own content, try and fail in public, and keep things for postery as tech startups come and go.

The digital garden

Like many other people I maintain a set of undated text files that change over time. I have been doing this since 2005; first on little index cards, and eventually in digital environments. My Dropbox folder contains a private version of this set, consisting of thousands of files I've written in the past few decades.
