about the author

the author

I currently live in Somerville, MA. That’s where the name of this journal comes from.

I’m professionally interested in usability, accessibility, Web/Internet technologies, and technology-enabled learning.

I’m avocationally interested in the environment, intellectual property law/policy/reform, the entertainment industries, politics, assorted stripes of activism, and the arts (among other things).

I write about things that interest me, and (sometimes) things that happen to me.

I also take pictures.

I never really intended to have an online journal; this site came about by accident. I wrote a bit about the evolution of this site.

On this site, I try to follow current copyright law, whether I agree with it or not. For this reason, access to some posts is restricted.
