Story
Tagline
If you are paying me to think on your behalf I want the money up front.
Introduction
Politics, technology, economics, photography, activism...  these are some of the things that drive me.  

There are few greater feelings you can have than the one that comes from seeing someone's eyes light up when you have successfully communicated a complex system or process in a way that they understand.
Bragging rights
I once ported Zen and the Art of the Internet to Microsoft's short-lived LIT ebook format.

Cool. And no shock here: 'Though it was previously assumed that being out increased the amount of victimization, the current study found that LGBT students experienced bullying whether they were out or not.'
The study found that the positive effects of coming out actually seemed to counteract some of the consequences of bullying that LGBT students might experience in school.

Your tax dollars at work. :) This was produced to help people getting SNAP benefits stretch their food dollars while still getting decent meals.
While a healthy diet is the cornerstone to good health, meeting that goal can be a challenge. That is why we are delighted to offer this publication to the public.

“School libraries make a difference,” said Moore. “I moved around a lot as a young child, and the first place I would visit in a new place was the school library. The librarians guided me, encouraged me, and set the stage for my lifelong love of reading. As educators, school librarians have a tremendous impact on our students’ personal and intellectual growth. School libraries foster creativity, innovation, play, and experimentation and offer a nurturing, and safe place for children to learn. I have a lot of love for librarians.”
School Library Month (SLM) is the American Association of School Librarians' (AASL) celebration of school librarians and their programs. Julianne Moore is the national spokesperson 2015.
