Travel, trips, and treading water.

Project Description
Typical Trip
Started with videos.

Obtained a Canon HV10 camcorder and a Macbook Pro. Used Garageband and iMovie to make music videos. Then video sharing sites became popular. Internet celebrity became a thing. Programmers were the new tycoons. Success seemed inevitable.

Hand written travelogue about bus travel.

Written when the iPhone 1 came out. Social networks were spreading like mycellium.

Living with a habit in a small rented room.

False Illogicology (dec-2009)

Various Acts of Self Preservation (dec-2009)

Five Words (dec-2009)

Several years of confusion and wasted effort.

Love, alcohol, marijuana, terror, imposters.
Paris, Winnipeg, Chicago, Toronto. Thought I was a writer. Repeated rejections.

An AR Game
Won a cell phone.

It was the prize in a contest. This technical description was written in bars and bunkhouses in southern Africa.

The algorithmic music phase.

Drunk, lonely, somewhat hopeless, writing games and music. Entertained by a fantasy of being a member of a robot band. Live in Lilongwe. And this weird drunken hybrid game of AR and algorithmic music.


Specific timeframe difficult to recall. Lost data, broken drives, Swazi, brandy, money, worry. Struggle to regain flow. Struggle to find that feeling of beginning.

Product of a Dishevled Mind

Bussing 1
Second iteration of the digital book concept.

Used the cell phone again. New code, new concept. Tried the movie idea again.

Four Days
Four days of riding municipal busses.

An attempt to join the startup craze.

It failed, or "graduated" , from YCombinator Startup School (2018), after being mistakenly admitted by a boolean bug.

Bussing 2
Third iteration of the digital book concept.

This time it uses a virtual DOM framework (VueJS).

Still looking.

It'll be either death, or success then death. But at least there are children.
