Ping!

Sure haven’t posted here in a while – I have been keeping busy in meatspace with my family in sunny, pleasantly weird Boulder. Also, I am currently building awesome software at inspiringapps.com. That’s it – carry on!IMG_20150523_122702

Seattle, Generative Nerd Mecca

Seattle’s a geek-permissive town in general, but lately I’ve learned more about the actual shape of that – we’re a city that exports quite a lot of new ideas and content, plenty of it very geeky.

  • So crazy many indie game companies flourish here
  • Huge names, too: WOTC, Nintendo, Privateer Press, Bungie are set up here
  • Several larps were birthed here back in the 1980s!
  • 1% of the year, my neighborhood is not much more than PAXville.
There are bigger cities for media (LA), finance (NYC), and yeah, even software (San Francisco), but I assert that Seattle is the geek culture capital of the world. Hoist your freak flag high.

Adding content

So, I’ve got megabytes and megabytes of just, stuff – code, writing, content – stuff I want to have archived here. But there’s a lot going on these days, so I’m going to add it piecemeal and update here. If there’s two things I shoot for it’s moderation and consistency…

Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Ported

Well, switching from handrolled php to WordPress is a huge load off. It’s like moving from Reisterstown, MD to Seattle, WA – things will begin to make more sense.

…Aaaand we’re back.
