About me:

I'm a magazine journalist (for the New York Times Magazine, Wired, Smithsonian, Mother Jones and others) and book author (my latest is Coders: The Making of a New Tribe and the Remaking of the World). Email is [email protected] since they don't yet have messaging here on spacehey ...

I'm also a musician -- guitarist/songwriter for the country/bluegrass band The Delorean Sisters, here's a cover we did of the Eurythmics' "Here Comes The Rain Again" as a spooky field song ...

BTW, this button below was created by corentin -- it's a randomizer that takes you to a random Spacehey profile. You can join it too; corentin explains how in his blog post here ... hello please add me in the spacehey's unofficial random blogroll, thanks

@gio Glad you liked that! No, I've never been to that festival -- it sound amazing! I live in NYC but travel to SF for work occasionally ... after the pandemic eases up and I'm back traveling, I'll have to try to time it so I'm there to see!

Man, If I did my todo list "user hostile style", I couldn't type this message to you! It would be like grandmas internet explorer toolbars taking up half the screen!

Hey clive! Love the song you put on here. Eurythmics are great. Have you ever gone to Hardley Strictly Blue Grass Festival in San Fransisco ?

@Isaac Yes, I did log in to play! It was super cool -- I wandered around a bit, found my way into a house another player had designed with tons of amazing skins, used one of them ... then I couldn't figure out how to get out of the house, lol, so I logged off.


I'll go back in later tonight ... I'd love to try building some custom stuff
