What I'm doing now
I work on Honeybadger for about six hours a day. We’re building a new product. 👀
Last November I started a Mastodon server for journalists and folks interested in information literacy and ethics. It’s called federated.press. Some notable folks have joined, including Scott MacFarlane, Clint Watts, VICE News, Rob Malda, and others. We recently became fiscally sponsored by the Open Collective Foundation, which means we can accept tax-deductible donations!
I’ve also been working on a project related to fact-checking that I’ll write about soon.
I’m currently reading The Origins of Totalitarianism by Hannah Arendt. I keep saying I’ll switch to lighter topics, but my curiosity leads me back to history and politics. I also have a copy of the Routledge Handbook of Conspiracy Theories sitting here. Between those two, that could be my reading for the next six months.
I’m on Goodreads if you want to be book friends.
I haven’t been blogging much lately, but I did publish a personal essay last October (on my birthday) that resonated with some people. It was originally published to Substack, but I decided to move it to this blog (reasons, if you’re curious), and plan to do all my writing here moving forward.
Check out my new photography portfolio of photos from the last three years. I’ve also been doing some local wildlife photography lately, which you can find on Instagram.
I’m once again trying to claw my way back into PR territory in the garage gym. I’ve had more injury than personal bests these past two years. I rebooted my protein-heavy diet to try to help with the 5-day lifting routine.
I’ve also been out walking a lot.
I’ve been playing more piano than bass lately, purely for fun. Still working on Hanon piano exercises. Particularly obsessed with Ludovico Einaudi.
Still working on this website
And always will be. I’m still not happy with the notes section—maybe I’ll get around to it this year.
In December we suddenly lost our German Shepherd dog—Klaus—to cancer. I miss him.
