Welcome

This site serves as a sort of switchboard for the activities that consume my interests and time. The various topics have a common theme in the promotion of communication architectures that leverage the Internet as a tool for community building on local, regional, national, and global scales. Significant effort goes to containing anti-community forces working to preserve the disconnected status quo.
