My interviewing website, called Conversus, is a place where people can tell any story they want. My experience interviewing includes as a radio, television, print reporter and as well as a freelance videographer and writer, and through my work as a public affairs officer. Because I have talked to hundreds of people during my career (maybe thousands), I have a good sense for what motivates people to share, namely asking a simple question and then, listening. I have had many five minute conversations with strangers who's stories could've been made into indie film sagas, only to have them disappear never to be seen again. I think these interactions are the stuff that fuel us and give us empathy for each other. [more inside]

I stay in a lot of hotels for work, and have become fascinated with the bizzarre carpet patterns often found in the hallways. I have collected them here for your viewing pleasure.

[Citation Needed] - The Best of Wikipedia's Worst Writing is a collection of some of our all-time favorite entries from the blog
of the same name. It has over two hundred examples of so bad it's funny Wikipedia writing with commentary from me and Josh Fruhlinger (from the Comics Curmudgeon blog.) And best of all, it's free for the Kindle
for the next few days!

Meme Pool is a Tumblr blog that "evolves" new posts. Genotypes are post tags, phenotypes are Creative Commons images from Flickr, and mutations are introduced by the blog's followers. I wrote it in Python. Here's a more detailed description.

These are all my shirts. I’m going through my closet shirt-by-shirt until I’ve worn them all, posting pictures and short histories.

I have been collecting screenshots of clever stunts and UI details in web apps and thought I'd make it a tumblog and generally available. What can I improve?
Thanks for all suggestions (and even submissions of course)

Sex and Paradoxes is a new tumblr I've started. It's pretty much exactly what it says it is. NSFW!

My attempt to turn some of the existing LOLHIPSTERS sites on their ear by way of deconstruction. At least, that's the highbrow explanation. At the very least, I want to satirize the mocking of my hipster brethren around the world.
