Sorry for the snarkiness in the previous post. I'm a bit worked up about
our website being down for the third time this month. I know I should
work on other projects, but it kind of disrupts the daily workflow.
William and I work together on Infoshop.org, which is down today. That
project is run by a collective and a network of volunteers. If anybody
wants to hear more about what we are doing with tech, just ask.
Hopefully the new Infoshop t-shirts will show up today and perk up my mood.
William and I also do Bread and Roses Web Design. I've been unemployed
and underemployed for the last six years as a web guy, so this is one of
my efforts to be more proactive about making money. Oddly enough, these
days I'm hearing from more employers, but they are still incredibly
picky about who they want. I don't know all of the latest on Ajax, Java,
SQL, Flash and so on, but I've been slinging HTML for 12 years and have
degrees in painting/sculpture and in information science.
You think that I would be qualified to occupy a cubicle for some company
I have a blog, which today features a rant about idiots at Wikipedia:
I run an infoshop here in Kansas City called the Crossroads Infoshop and
Radical Bookstore. I also help run the Creative Mind Arts Center, which
is home to the Hip Hop Academy.
I'm involved with the Kansas City Independent Media Center
(kcindymedia.org) which has more of a pulse these days.
I'm working on several books, including:
For activism these days, I've been involved in the War Resisters League,
SDS, and the local Code Pink.
I'm doing fun stuff but most of it doesn't pay. Probably ironic for an
anarchist to complain about money, but there you have it.
