Daniel Messer was out running. He tracked 5.84 km in 39m:41s.

Ran a bit short this afternoon. Shallow breathing on the last kilometer kinda shot that down. Not bad, but it's irritating when I can't finish the full 6k.

WAIT.

Mark Hamill is going to be playing The Trickster again in the new Flash?

You know, like he did back when John Wesley Shipp was the Flash?

I think... I think I'm gonna cry. I'm just so... so happy!

Same old podcast, but with new cover art!

I was busy this morning making some new stuff. Scroll down a bit in my feed for the new cover art to my new podcast. Or just look below this text for the new cover art to my current podcast. I figure it's time I stopped forcing people to look at my weird face in their podcatcher.

Daniel Messer was out running. He tracked 6.05 km in 39m:48s.

Weather is warming up and the runs are getting easier. People can say what they like about the heat, but I absolutely thrive in it.

Story

Everything I do is open source.
Introduction
Hello. My name is Dan. I live online.

No, seriously, I do. My job, my passions, my hobbies, and my creativity all revolve around online life.

By day, I'm a public library web content manager which means I get paid to design, engineer, and put things online for the library.

In my off time, I write and create online content for myself and others. I'm a digital creative dabbling in illustrations, music, video making and podcasting. I'm the author of two books and I've written for several blogs and websites. While I still have a website or two, I've decided to bring the majority of my writing to Google+, a route taken by Mike Elgan and others and it's a method I agree with.

I write about everything that interests me, but if you glance at my drivel you'll see that I tend to write about tech, libraries, the remix culture, Linux and FOSS, online life, online video, podcasts, science, Japanese pop culture. and history.

I consider myself a cyberpunk -- a devotee of high tech and low life -- or at least high tech and low budget. One of my specialities is making tech work, and work well, even with a limited budget.

I have a degree in history, specializing in the history of science. I have an extensive background in astronomy with a focus on exosolar planetary systems. I'm a librarian who's worked in libraries for 18 years. Some of it made sense along the way.
Bragging rights
I wrote a couple of books. They're not great, but they're two more than most people write. :)
