All else is drowning
Nature's sounds erase the din
of the man-made world

There is something grand
lifting up a thousand cranes
Above the water

Alexandra Mathews takes in the sights, sounds, and natural wonder of the great outdoors in her poem "A Thousand Cranes."
FJ Poetry: "The dry wind rushes / through a hill of golden leaves / pushing them apart..."

Very nice. The British Library puts things up on Flickr and sees how people (want to) use them. One example of use was a lightboard on display at Burning Man; it will also be on display at the British Library for five months soon.

And a video with little direct scholarly value, but lovely use of the Flickr images:

Wait a minute... This guy is a genius. 
Your website should be so simple, a drunk person could use it. But you can't test that, so I'll do it for you.

Story
Tagline
A father, husband, programmer, librarian, tattoo and sci-fi fan; a vegan, quaker, buddhist, and introvert; a 1979 westfalia owner... and, a perpetual rambler who is rarely at ease.
Introduction
My tagline probably says it all, but in case not:

"Anything you want to know, just ask me,
I'm the world's most opinionated man.
I'll give you an answer if I can
Catch one passing through
That feels right for you.

Anything you want to know, just ask me,
It's worth every cent it costs.
And you know it's free for you,
Special deal.

Anything you want to know, it should be perfectly clear.
You see just beneath the surface of the mud,
There's more mud here...
Surprise." -- David Crosby

Things that interest me (feel free to add me to related circles):
  • Animals (veganism, vegetarianism, psychology, etc.)
  • Music (folk, rock, acoustic, bluegrass, old time, etc.)
  • Science (astronomy, cognitive science, health, etc.)
  • Programming (Java, XQuery, PHP, XML, etc.)
  • Tech (Android, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, DIY, etc.)
  • Religions (Quakerism, Buddhism, Non-violence, etc.)
  • Digital libraries/archives, curation, and digital access
  • Copyright, gift-culture, and open source software
  • Appalachia (music, culture, region, preservation, etc.)
  • Volkswagon Type II Campers (repair, history, etc.)
  • Science Fiction (movies, books, literary criticism, etc.)
For what it's worth, I post (almost) everything to my main G+ stream.  I won't be upset if you uncircle me (or don't add me) because you want a more focused stream.

Perhaps this goes without saying but, since I list my current employer and previous places I've worked, I'll say it anyway:
