Bitstreet Framework

I've been developing software for around 8 years. I've discovered the basic problems people need solved over and over again to have a successful presence online. I've managed to come up with a project that has almost all of them solved from the beginning. This allows you to continue doing what you do best without having to find ways to "send email newsletters" or "create a calendar of events"; these basic needs will already be figured out for you. The best part is you can have some powerful software to focus on the success of your organization, not the troubleshooting of technical problems.

Special Needs Parenting Blog

I've been keeping a blog that details my experiences as a parent of a child with multiple disabilities. In 2012, I started interspersing a series of articles that are a set of simple projects that any parent can do to help their child with Down syndrome (or any child with gross or fine motor issues). Finally, in a bout of craziness, I have signed up to run the Falmouth Road Race in order to raise money for the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress, an organization that has been immeasurably helpful to our family and so many others.

Saving Sasha

I adopted a dog from a dog rescue and tried to teach her to love me or at least come when she's called. And then, because it's 2012, I started a blog about it. And then, because sometimes life is really shitty, I discovered that my brand new doggie is horribly sick.

Video for Lunch: a blog of #QualityVideos, all 5 mins+

Great videos longer than 5 minutes are shared everyday on the blog Video For Lunch. It's so named because the found videos are nourishing and good to watch while you eat lunch. Things like a short doc on climbing photography, a New York Times op-ed video on P.T.S.D, and Tom Waits putting a fish in his pants. No gratuitous time-lapses, music videos, or the usual viral video fare. A la #longreads, sharing is encouraged with the hashtag #qualityvideos. Shorter #VideoSnacks are served on the side and @VideoForLunch.

The Long Bleep, a podcast and blog about taboo language.

The Long Bleep will be a public forum for discussion of four-letter words, "dirty" words, swearing, cursing, obscenities, and more. The first step is a questionnaire. Its results will be used to create podcasts and blog posts structured around things that really happened when taboo language was used: confrontations, first encounters, eureka moments, learning situations. Those stories will lead us down cultural and historical paths as we tease out the complicated relationship English-speakers worldwide have with "dirty" words. More information on the blog.

The Mysterious Yes

Sometimes we respond to things – a film, a piece of music, a book, a painting, a photograph – with a mysterious, instantaneous yes. But what is it about any given piece of art that resonates so deeply? This is our* attempt to make sense of our reactions. [more inside]

ALL CAPS CENTERED - a blog about things that annoy me (and maybe you)

In an effort to stop complaining so much, I decided to create my own personal complaint department on the internet, where I can get it out of my system. My friend David is also posting a few of his pet peeves. If anyone else cares to have posting privileges, let me know. The more the merrier. It's healthy, it's free, and it will make you wealthy beyond your dreams. Perhaps.

A Month In Music

There are 10,513 MP3s on my hard disk. According to iTunes, that’s nearly 30 days worth of music. It has taken half my life – 15 years – to build this collection but I decided to listen to them all in one go. One continuous concert, playing songs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I wanted to revist all the songs I'd once loved, and the memories and places they called up. The only choice I made was the first track. After that, the computer randomly decided what was going to play. No stopping. No skipping. No changing the volume. Music, all the time, for a whole month. The Month In Music blog charts the progress of the playback project, updated once a day with original writing and photography. So far, it's a couple of days in...

Dementia be Damned

My sister was diagnosed with dementia last month. Finding information on the dementia in patients with intellectual disabilities is proving to be a challenge.

Medical Writing Blog

Some of my early AskMeFi questions were about medical writing as an alternative career for someone with a science PhD. I followed the advice in that post and was then able to get fulltime jobs at medical communications companies. Later, I eventually transitioned away from those fulltime jobs into freelance medical writing. As a way of “paying it forward,” I’ve created a blog for people who may have similar questions and have posts that answer questions such as “How do you get hired at a medical communications company” or “How can you find clients for a freelance medical writing business?” [more inside]

No Poster Girl. Life With Severe ME/CFS: A bed-lyin', pill-poppin', muscle-wastin' good time.

I developed myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome in 2004, and I've been bedridden because of it since 2007. Having gotten a little bit of improvement in the last year or so from the intensive attention of a prominent specialist, I've been able to be online more. And with that, I realized that though I interact frequently with friends via social networking, almost nobody outside my family and very close friends knew what the disease had done to me - or much about it in general. I didn't like that that was the case, and so No Poster Girl was born. [more inside]

Oh Shit, I'm In Grad School

It's real. It's a thing. It's my webcomic, which I wisely named "Oh Shit, I'm In Grad School". I've been drawing comics as part of my grad work in Rhetoric and Writing (a subdiscipline of English that studies writing, the history of writing, the teaching of writing, writing that is awesome, and doesn't worry about literature) but they have all been photocopied print zines. As an installation I'm debuting at the Computers and Writing conference, I have started a webcomic version using Comicpress. [more inside]

Melodic Expectation

Every week day, I post a link and a little write-up to a free album, single, or EP. By free, I mean a recording posted by the artist or their label that is available for instant download, pay-what-you-want download, or we'll-email-you-a-link download. (I research enough to be sure the download is legitimate and working at time of post.) Genres are all over the place but include electronic, ambient, indie rock, pop, chiptune, etc. Want to fill your mp3-playing-device for free? Do it here.
