Hey! A home page!

blog | William Gibson | Carmageddon | CHIC | 1984 Civic hatchback

Ever seen the Motorola BitSurfr ad "Meet the Veeblefesters" (find obnoxious home pages 8x faster)?

Well, this page is worse!

Newer Blog

My blog is powered by WordPress these days, still the same low-speed blender of art, ecology, music, skiing, cars. My old 2005–2010 orange Blogger blog is still intermixed in the same directory along with its labels.
You can follow my blog by adding https://www.skierpage.com/blog/ to your feed or iGoogle home page (here are more details on setting up Firefox 3).

The blog replaced my rants & raves, with just the rant about "See the reverse" idiocy from Wells Fargo Rewards.

Other stuff from before blogs

I maintained an exceptionally complete bibilography/mediagraphy of William Gibson, the great sf writer.

I have some information about the Carmageddon PC game, especially the Splat Pack courses

I like all kinds of music ("We like both kinds of music, Country and Western" -- The Blues Brothers movie), but I've got detailed pages for the black R&B supergroup and production powerhouse CHIC.

I used to (sniff) own the eponymous 1984 gray Civic "S" model, the most beautiful hatchback ever created.

Jhane Barnes is great, but alas I lost the domain jhanebarnesisgod.com to some Japanese/Chinese spammer. :-(

Social Web stuff

As I wrote in my immortal post web: it's one social network, not 1000 sites, I should be able to comment on any URL here and my comment should show up on other sites. The reality is most people can't be bothered to run a blog or set up an identity on a distributed social platform no one has heard of, so I have to be where the rest of humanity hangs out. I'm "skierpage" on dozens and dozens of social networks, forums, and services (note none of these images makes a privacy-sucking web request to its networks) :
Mastodon Facebook GitHub Google+ Launchpad (Ubuntu) Twitter etc., etc.
(some of these can OpenID OpenID me; the FOAF FOAF dream isn't quite dead.)

S Page
My e-mail address is the 5 characters of my name @ skierpage.com.
Death to spammers!
