Daniel Messer was out running. He tracked 5.02 km in 31m:21s.

Thanks to the humidity, my shirt is soaked with sweat to the point that it looks like I wore it in the pool.

Just couldn't push it through today. It's 106 F with massive clouds above. When the head gets light, it's time to stop and try again tomorrow.

This right here? I'd read every page of a story like this. The Penny Arcade guys, if ever they get tired of web comics, there's always graphic novels.

Hot night but wonderful run! Lightning in the distance and illegal fireworks in the air around me. #murica

Daniel Messer was out running. He tracked 5.05 km in 33m:25s.

Sometimes you run the full 6k, sometimes you run until the heat gets to you. It's 105 F here. 5k will be fine.

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. :)
